No Fishing Bear
I think the Blue Jay is reminding Wesley that his catch of the day is in a No Fishing zone and should release it back to the lake! With the most innocent and goofy look on Wesley's face he tries to conceal a huge fish that he has other plans for! Hand carved entirely from American chestnut with great detail. The large stones look incredibly real but they are made from American chestnut with a touch of resin for water at the base. The wood grain is stunning and Peter used very fine ground chestnut shavings for the bear's muzzle and the large stones. Wesley in this scene is so whimsical you just have to smile!
