'The Christmas Indian' (Swipe left on pic for gallery)
(Sioux Warrior with head band & feathers)
mulberry wood, Approx ~13"x 3"
With some carving knives, chisels and some sand paper with dremel, I managed this hand carving of a Sioux Warrior for my sisters friend for Christmas whom had suffered from Leukemia (the same as my niece). Her father was a collector of Native American artifacts, who passed away some time prior to this Christmas. Her siblings left her with nothing to remember him by except only her memory of his fascination with these Native Peoples. So my sister suggested to me, to make her a carving of a Native American.... #woodcarver #handcarved #flexcut #carving #robvegart #nativeamericanindian #woodenindian #dremeltools #whittling #craftsman #woodsculpture #mulberrywood #indianamerican #woodcarved #carvedart #flexcuttools #handsculpted #handsculpture #woodartist #woodartisan #nativeamericanarts #knifecarving #knifecarved #dremel #dremeltool #powercarving #indianwarrior #indianportrait #woodenportrait #workingwithwood

A 360 degree view of the wizard. The walnut wood was very hard and this guy took me a ridiculously long time to carve. Close to 40 hours. Do any of you woodcarvers keep track of the hours you put into a piece? For me it's scary to do sometimes 😁 .

I made this system for my little Eldris from Mora. A small knife with a lot of potential and a great handle! // #vildskogsvictor .

I've been working on this guy for two weeks now 😅 Carving every night after work and on weekends. He was supposed to be another monster but ended being... a wizard? A gnome? Sometimes you just don't know what hides inside a piece of wood. Very hard walnut, feels like carving stone. But that's just what I want when it comes to creating tiny figures 😊 .
