Carved Best

This is a better photo of the completed carving and during the wood burning process. every square inch had to be wood burned to simulate the feather barbs. The base is made of 5 layers of 3/4 inch ply wood, the stump (barely visible in the back) is a real one that I found in my woods. the beard (hanging from the breast) is made of Sisal which is the material ropes are made of.
