Very nice, I just finished some small bears last week. I have only done a few wood spirits with the chainsaw, yours looks great.

He has a sort of Viking look...if that was what you were going for. Nice to see the whole head carved into the log. Once I get into chainsaw carving, I hope to do more than just the faces. Your carving turned out very well.
