"Black Sheep Walking Stick" - Original 2004

This piece was done for a customer who likes to hike and wanted a unique walking stick. Since she collects anything with Black Face Sheep it was a simple decision to carve a sheep on the top. This piece was carved out of a single piece of Sumac Wood. The sheep was carved with the consideration that the stick would be gripped from the top. Also, if you look closely there are finger grips carved under the sheep.
