Original wood carving of a wolf teaching her pups to howl called "The Lesson". The wolves are cherry and are mounted on a walnut base. Stain was used for coloring. It is finished with tung oil.
Carving dimensions are approximately 14" W x 7" D x 8 3/4" T.
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.
