All our wooden men are hand carved from solid cedar stumps. The kind of figure carved is inspired by the natural shape of the stump. Because all parts of bodies are carved and/or turned from solid pieces of cedar, various fractures lines occur enhancing the unique characteristic of each of these men. The arms are attached by bolts which enables them to be mobile. Legs are solidly attached to the body and affixed to a wooden base. Heads and hats are turned, carved and then attached. Every wooden man is a one of kind. They range in height from 3' to 4.5'.
The horseback rider stands approximately 50" high. The bar in his hands can be used to hang a horse blanket, throw, towel or the like and is adjustable by moving his arms up or down. The uniform is inspired by equestrian riders in the horse jumping world.
