Original wood carving of a black bear sow with her two cubs... and a turtle! The wood used is black walnut, and it is finished with tung oil.
Carving dimensions are approximately 14" x 9" x 20".
Each carving is signed and numbered on the bottom by Joan. When she completed her first piece at age 13 she marked it on the bottom of the base as #1, her second as #2 and so on. The number on each piece indicates it's place out of all the carvings she has ever completed.
To dust, apply a light coat of lemon oil with a paint brush and wipe dry with a soft cloth.
