This Uncle Sam is up on a soapbox proudly waving American flags before he makes a very important speech! Hand carved from American chestnut this is an absolutely one-of-a-kind Uncle Sam carving! The expression and detail are amazing! His blue coat with tails and textured gold leaf vest are decorated with tiny gold buttons and he's wearing red and white striped pants. He's also wearing a white stand up collar shirt with a red ascot. Just have to love his over sized brown boots! And he's not complete unless he's wearing his traditional top hat! His soapbox is a tree stump decorated with gold rope and stars with America across the front. Everything is carved from American chestnut, Peter carved a piece of chestnut to resemble a tree stump and left it unpainted to appreciate American chestnut in the natural. Uncle Sam's hands and flags are made from copper wire and sheeting and his hair is made from steel wool by the artist.
