One of the classes at the NW Carving Academy in Ellensburg, Washington was taught by Jeff Harness. I am very happy the way this Native American Indian turned out and the instruction from Jeff. It was carved out of Cottonwood bark, 10 inches by 4 inches and 3 inches thick. The bark had a crack on the side which bark can have at times. It was a week long course at the fair grounds. A couple of evenings I wood burned a horse on basswood. It was my attempt to shade.
