“Pipin’ Parader”

This fella’ really enjoys a good smoke. He appreciates the solitude and reflection that accompany his evening-time toke. It’s the time of day when he can rest his legs and stretch out his toes for a bit. He sits, thinks, smokes and smiles of the day past and beauty that surrounds him.

15 1/2" tall, 4" wide and 3 1/2" thick

I carved this pipe-smoking rascal in a Hemlock knot. Hemlock knots can be found out in the woods where a Hemlock tree once resided. The rest of the tree rots away much quicker than the pitch-filled resilient, blank canvases of the woods :)
