Great Blue Heron

A Heron symbolizes Calmness, Patience, Determination.  We see them hunting often and they can stand absolutely still forever, a better fisherman than any of us.

I was recently commissioned to make a Blue Heron Award.

“Morning John, event was great. The award was magnificent, stood out above all the other awards. The recipients of the award, loved it. You did good. “

Here are some photos of the production process.

In the past century duck hunter’s used wooden heron carvings as hunting tools, called Confidence Decoys, they would stick one out in the water away from their duck blind and decoy rig to fool the ducks into thinking it was safe to land.  I  have a carving called Old Blue that is much like the original.
