Monthly challenge February

I have made this piece with PTSD in mind. A subject which is close to me as I’m afraid I suffer with it. Fortunately I discovered Woodturning and I find it a great way of somehow dealing with my issues. Anyway enough of that, I hope you enjoy this nutcracker as much as I enjoyed turning it . He stands 18” from head to toe and the lance is 24” long and is made from tulip wood. I must credit my wife for decorating him.
