Week of Sticks Day 5 #62915

Day 5 of wood art stick sculpture. This is a very early dancing stick couple. The early pieces do not have rounded heads. At first the concept was to wore the art as little as possible. Looking back at it I like the idea and it would wear my hands out less than all the sanding I do now. The round heads and smoother bodies are probably worth the work and some day I may even play with other detail. Who knows?

The feathers are all that was left of “Brutus” the rooster after he attacked one of my sons and gashed his eye.  He belonged to our neighbor but thought he dominated the neighborhood.  By the time the doctor’s visit was over his owner made sure Brutis was gone. Bad day for everyone. Guess I was trying to make something other than disaster from that day!

That was years ago. My son’s eye has healed and he’s ok.  Never asked exactly what became of Brutus.
