  • Stick Topper

    I did this carving for a customer who wanted to put it on top of a stick. The raven is about 5.25 inches long. She sent me the brass coupler so I could drill the appropriate hole in the carving, then I recessed it just enough that the brass didn't show. Final photo is one she sent me showing it put together.

          Hi Claude
          nice one mate. I like the way you made the brass go away. It makes it look like he is just taking a rest on it.

              To be a Raven, you got the thickness of the beak just right. Well done.
              Love the knife plane marks. Such a distinctive style.

                  Very nice! Looks like something than might be used at a Renaissance Fair.

                    We have a major program trying to save ours....The 'Alala, a member of the raven family, is for native Hawaiians a sacred bird, revered as a guardian spirit for the soul on its way to the afterlife. These birds, indigenous to the island of Hawaii, were once plentiful, but disease, predation, and loss of habitat have brought them to the brink of extinction. We have a devastating chronicle of what happens to attempts to save an endangered species when the interests of landowners, biologists, government agencies, and conservation organizations clash: for the 'Alala, everything ended in heartbreak, 2002 the last time one of these birds was observed in the wild. Now only 50 'Alala remain, in captivity, and they have not survived when released, which two attempts of the release of ten birds have failed very badly...., for in spite of all the hard work and sacrifice expended on saving them, little has been accomplished, especially regarding the conservation or renewal of their natural habitat. The carving is a reminder that our endangered species are disappearing from the earth.

                      Hi Di
                      This is sadly the way of mankind. The sad thing is we never seem to learn from it no matter how many species disappear. The $ rules all and the nature of mankind is such that this is not likely to change.
