Now this man can carve some wood. If you don’t know who World’s Master Carver Ernest “Mooney” Warther (I didn’t either) – you’re about to find out, and be impressed.
Ernest “Mooney” Warther’s amazing carvings have been appraised by the Smithsonian Institution as “Priceless works of Art”, but the man behind the carvings was truly one of America’s unrecognized geniuses. Warther was considered by many to be an artist, mechanical genius, philosopher, inventor, collector, family man, showman, and knife maker who used his focus and determination to create so much with only a second grade education. Ernest considered carving strictly a hobby and refused fortunes for his works of art.
His time management and goal setting skills were exceptional. After working in the early morning on these incredible masterpieces, he still had time to make a living, raise a family, travel, and enjoy life, family, and friends to the fullest. Via – Warthers
