There is a story behind this but you won't really get it if you don't already know. That doesn't matter. This is a little rook I carved out of soapstone as a gift for . As soon as I started it, I felt like I should carve an entire set. Maybe I will someday. It's only about an inch tall, and that's why the photo is out of focus. My camera is bad at focusing, and really bad at macro shots.
