It must cost a fortune to have one of those carved for you.

Funny I was just thinking on the way home this evening that this art would be a great Halloween Blog topic! It is really beautiful in person! We went and walked around there one day when we were out yard sale ing, Amazing skill!

Those are really amazing, but can you imagine how "spooky" they would be at night? On Halloween night I'll bet they take on a life of their own! :-))
