These Indian faces are examples of the literally hundreds I have carved in my career as a professional woodcarver. I am probably best known for these Indian face woodcarvings.

Each Indian face is carved to authentically depict characteristics of a certain tribe. I also try to depict these Indian faces with a dignity that these noble peoples deserve.

My Indian faces are carved in logs that have been split on a bandsaw, which allows them to be displayed on either a wall or shelf. Each Indian face comes pre-drilled in the back for easy display.

Most of the time these Indian faces are finished with a natural clear finish, though occasionally I will apply a light stain or oil paint to highlight the features a little before applying the clear finish.
