Default Indian egg head

Reading the posts about old - young indians, smiling and frowning, my thought was to carve a young smiling Indian. Bought another goose egg at Silver Dollar City today, think I'll try again. I know how much I like pictures of your carvings so here's what this feller looks like. He doesn't look happy.Funny how my carvings look better on the shelf than they do in the pictures. Could it be my camera? Ha , you know I don't mean that, the old song said "computers do not lie" and pictures are proof.

Earl, Very realistic carving. Very nice. I like the way you photographed him. Brings out the characteristics of the carving and the wood. Tom H
