Me Can Fly!

This is a rough carving from three different pieces of wood.  The head is one of these strange growths on some pine limbs that are loaded with resin and therefore difficult to carve.  Many years ago these burls were used as torches and to light up the dark nights because they would burn for long periods.

This guy is sort of eerie looking when you look into those beady eyes.  The thing coming out of his head was just part of the limb and I hated to just cut it off.
