Thanks for the help everyone.
I don't know jack about computers, but I finally figured out the Mac posting technique.
She, "Jewel", was once part of a neighbors Mango tree.

Welcome to "Creating", HT. That is a very unique piece. Is it your first?

Here are my first three carvings. "the Tree Stooges" who still reside in our tiki bar, are all made from driftwood found on Kailua Beach.
The guy on the left is a fountain. The guy on the right is a mailbox stand and will soon be moved outside, when we get landscaped .
All three were hand chiseled (before I entered the wonderful world of Power Tools), and cost me about 3000 hours, 2 vertebrae and 200 stitches.

Is she a fountain? I can envision water rolling down between her eyes into her nose, overflowing into her mouth, and gathering in that lower bowl (Gosh, but that sounds disgusting now that I typed it, but I thing it'd look great!).

yes she's a fountain. But I have to get a tiny pump. She's les than 2 ft. tall. Someone told me that I can find Glow-in-the-dark water coloring on ebay.
She needs a little atmosphere.
