Indian with Braids

The holiday season has come upon us. Thanksgiving is just a few days away.  Thanksgiving Day is traditionally a day for families and friends to get together for a special meal. The meal often includes a turkey, stuffing, potatoes, cranberry sauce, gravy, pumpkin pie, and vegetables. Thanksgiving Day is a time for many people to give thanks for what they have. I too have many things to be thankful for.
The native american is carved out of cottonwood bark. It's about 11 inches tall. In carving the braids, Don Mertz gave an explanation on how to carve the braids. Draw a zig zag line down the braid. Extend the upward lines to the edge of the braid. Use a v-tool and knife to separate and shape the segments. I hope this helps.
