This is an original piece of art by me, Josh Carte. This is a sculpture in a piece of Cottonwood bark. It will make a perfect wood gift for him or her. This handmade woodworking is a really unique piece of wall art.

I carved this face of an old man in a piece of Cottonwood bark. Yes, it is actually a real piece of bark from a Cottonwood tree. Cool, right?! I think so, too. I left this piece of bark completely natural, i.e. I didn't use a sealer, paint stain or dye on this piece. To clean this carving, simply blow on it :) Cottonwood bark is soft, so it is best to only touch the rough parts of the bark.

SHIPPING IS INCLUDED in the price of the carving to the USA! Please contact me for international shipping. I have safely shipped hundreds of carvings, so you can buy with complete confidence.


This sculpture measures 8 3/4" tall, 3 1/2" wide and 2" thick.

I include a certificate telling a bit about myself with all of my wood spirit wood carvings! I also sign and date the back of each carving :)

Cottonwood bark is very nice in that it never changes, shifts or moves, This piece of bark will always remain stable and beautiful, so it can be passed on for generations.

Everything in my shop is made by hand, by me, Josh Carte. I don't have any elves or helpers. I am in charge of the carving, packing, shipping, communication and everything else in between. I love it :) When you buy from me, you are helping a family instead of a corporation. We very much appreciate it!

I try my very best to create the most original, detailed and beautiful carvings that I can. I only use very high quality materials, stains, paints and sealers. I love what I do, so I am always trying to improve!

Frequently Asked Questions

Custom and personalized orders

Yes, I sometimes take custom orders :) Contact me and we can discuss the specifics.

I really enjoy creating themed walking sticks such as Odin, Thor, Baron Samedi or many, many other possibilities. If you'd like a stick with bears, owls, or whatever else you might have in mind, just shoot me a message and we can discuss it.

I am also happy to make custom chainsaw carvings of about any animal or object you'd like.

I know that, as a customer, you expect a certain level of control over the custom process and I, as an artist, expect a certain level of freedom. When we are able to meet in the middle, beautiful things can happen :)

Don't be afraid to message me :) Thanks so much!

Care instructions

My carvings can be cleaned using many different methods. A feather duster works nicely. Compressed air (duster or air compressor) also works well. If on a porch or indoors, my carvings will never need a new coat of sealer. Chainsaw carvings that are outdoors will need a fresh coat of sealer each year.
