This carving seeks to evoke the intelligence and strength of the Alpha female of the pack - she is the Alpha Male's mate for life, she rears her young with patience and diligence, training them, protecting them, correcting them, and taking time to rough-house with them in playtime. She is ever watchful for danger and will leap into harms way with fang and claw to protect her young. This Northwoods Creation carving is made to grace the wall of lodge, cabin, or Kids Room just for fun. Carved from Knotty pine from the Northwoods of Michigan including a fur-like texture and look, finished in a multi-layer staining process using four different stains and sealed with a thin coat of polyurethane to protect and harden the wood. The item measures roughly 9 inches tall x 7 inches wide x 3 inches in depth and weighs 1 pound 6 ounces. A small hole is pre-drilled on the back for ease of hanging on your wall.
