Bark Carving is one of those carving mediums that has taken off and is now mainstream carving. Cottonwood Bark covers the spectrum of woodcarving from small figurines to Faces, that said, the most common subject is the wild man, tree spirit and Native North American. Not just Spirit faces but Whimsical Towers, Dragon Castles and Wildlife or Nature subjects as well.
