Hackberry Wood Spirit

Here is my new wood spirit.. This is the first time I have carved hackbery. It is a hard wood and carved with mallet and chisels.  I took down a hackberry tree on my property, so I will be carving more. I think I like the yellow color. It still amazes me how the carving comes to life when I finish the eyes. Burning the iris really has a dramatic effect. He is sealed with a light coat of polyurethane
