Here is a picture of part of my Cane collection. . Walking Sticks and Canes are my life long pleasure, even part of my dreams.

In the pictures is a carved Snake weaving in and out of an Antler.

The second one is a carved Lion in Ivory.

The third one and my favourite is a Monkey carved in Antler with a saw in his hand, cutting grapes of a vine. The more you look the more you see, tiny birds hiding in the vine. This is more like a netsuke carving. Dave

Incredible! I have no skill for carving even with power tools, then to imagine the amount of skill and dedication to your craft to do that all by hand. And think about what the lighting conditions were 100 years ago! The amount of love that goes into stick making is sometimes staggering!
