A couple of years ago, my cousin, Ken (who drew the concept art for my tattoo), experimented with carving some Santas. They were very good, especially for his first go at it. This past year, he was able to pick up the tools, and give it another go. Ken said he spent about 8 months on these two sculptures, chiseling at them whenever he had time. As you look, keep in mind, he only did a couple of santas before this, making these only the 4th or 5th pieces he has done. He has incredible talent!
