Meerkat stump

First of the year, and a few to go. I'm going to try make a go of carving this year, and let building work go. It's a scary step, but it's what I love doing. This is, I think, my best meerkat yet. Biggest anyway.
Wish me luck!
Comments, criticism, all welcome. Ta!

Re: Meerkat stump

That looks smart

How long does it take to carve something like that?
