I carved this angel out of butternut and left it the natural color, just a couple coats of Deft. I had the hands to high, so I need to lower them or cross the hands on the chest. It was hard to even the face like this. I'm also enlarging the wings so there will be more detail . A downward sweep on the wing may be another way to go. I like the way it turned out and didn't take that long to carve for an ornament. The angel is 4" high by 3" by 2".
