Pair of Hand Carved Foxes - Maple

60.00

Based on a traditional Japanese wooden toy design, each of these fox figurines are hand carved with great care in locally-harvested maple.

No two foxes are identical. 

The carving process begins by selecting a short segment of "green" tree limb or sapling trunk. That short, cylindrical segment is then split into eight wedge-shaped blanks roughly equal in size. Each blank is then carved to reveal the fox's profile and ears. The roughly carved blanks are then buried in wood shavings and left to dry completely after which they are re-carved, receiving the remaining details (bone dry wood takes detail much better than green wood) including the eyes. 

The maple foxes are finished with carnauba wax. 

The maple foxes are approximately 3 inches high. The triangular base of each maple fox is approximately 1 x 1 x 5/8 inches.
