Wood Carving

My Uncle Ralph, who lives in Pea Ridge, Arkansas, does the neatest tiny wood carving ornaments. He takes a thin slice of a tree branch and creates these carvings.
These tiny owls are my favorites. I don't know how he gets so much detail in such tiny creatures.
Of course he had to make the Arkansas Razorback.
I love this shape of the State of Arkansas.
Note how he carved out the tree that does not touch the top.
This is his version of the War Eagle Mill.
I am proud that he gifted me with some of his wood carving art.
