Wood Spirits by Pug Carver are hand carved from giant Canadian Cottonwood bark. The trees, which lived for decades before falling naturally, are so massive that carvings up to five inches in depth are composed entirely of bark.
Woodcarver lore says that wood spirits are born within the trees and are known for protective qualities. When hanging in your home, they watch over all who pass by. Green Men are special wood spirits that hide behind leaves. Their forms can vary, but their lineage can be traced all the way back to the 2nd century, and they are universally regarded as a sign of rebirth and spring. Their mysterious nature is one that pervades serval cultures and eras, from early India to Roman templar churches to gothic Britain. Carvers love to create these secretive creatures because of the endless tales that can be held in their eyes and the history that seems to stretch around the world.
