Carvings

This is almost all the wood carvings I selected from my grandmother's house after she died.  Most of the wood carvings were souvenirs my grandparents brought back from a trip to the Caribbean Islands. Have pretty much confirmed that they traveled to the Bahamas, Haiti and Jamaica.  I have some video footage from their trip(s), and if I can ever get it edited properly, will add it to this post. Not sure where the wildlife carvings were purchased.  The duck appears to be a Wiregrass carving (Southeast Alabama).  The wooden show is the iconic item that hails from Holland.  My grandfather likely purchased it on a stopover during his Russia trip in 1959.
















That's me.  And that Haiti machete is on the wall!
