Museum quality Carving! Magnificent Movement!

Tunnillie has carved Woody in a realistic fashion but has also endowed him with the innocence and rounded features of a Teddy Bear. 

Teddy Bears are seen as soft and cuddly, with extended snouts, large eyes, and foreheads; all features that enhance the cuteness of the bear.

Although Teddy Bears are soft, plush toys, there are many Inuit bear carvings that have similar features.

The stone medium does not prevent a carver from creating an innocent, endearing piece.

The coup de grace for Woody is his stunning color!

Look how the rust and green underlying colors show through the deep dark brown like subtle fireworks.

Woody will be a cherished gift to family, friends, and oneself!
