Video of a snake & cicada walking stick

I was browsing youtube and stumbled on this video. Just thought some of you might enjoy it. I think the way he created the scales on the snake is fascinating.

That's quite sight! He has talent and patience. I wonder how may hours were put into that project?
When he first did the wood burning on the snake and turned it dark, it looked just like a nasty, evil, aggressive Cottonmouth Water Moccasin.
Great work but not for me to cripple around on!

Amazing how he burnt in each scale of the snake, I thought it looked pretty cool even before he painted it. A good example of patience and craftsmanship.
Pocket, fixed, machete, axe, it's all good!

I have made many walking sticks in my time, but nothing on his level. I've watched his videos before and he is an artist for sure.
