George the bear cub is about 12 inches tall, the perfect size for just about anywhere around the house. He is finished for both indoors and outdoors and includes care instructions. He is carved from a whole log of White Cedar. As with all wood carvings, some cracks will occur. It is not a flaw or defect, but a natural part of the material and art. I allow the wood to dry for a number of weeks so the cracks will happen here before it is finished. Some additional minor cracking may occur depending on where it is displayed. A care sheet is included which details how to refinish the carving and how to color in any new cracks that may show up.
