During summer, I carved a few mountain animals. I used a carving knife and small pictures from a book to help me.
The first picture shows a chamois or isard, a kind of mountain goat from the Alps that looks a lot like a goat. It was easier as I got to see some while hiking.
The next one is supposed to be a big fat groundhog from the Alps, just getting out of her burrow. Everyone in my family said I made a nice bear!
They did get the wild sheep called mouflon right. It was pretty easy with the curved horns though. I have to admit I did a better job on this one.
