This is a caricature of my father.   He was a retired Marine and served from 1953 to 1976.  This was one of my first carvings where I tried to make it look like someone.  I carved it in 1998 and the photo album he is looking at has all of his grandchildren.  They have all since grown.  He is carved in basswood, 7" x 6", and even has some walnut in the rocker.
