Finished Rattlesnake Walking Stick with Mouse Top

After many hours of detailed carving and painting, this walking stick is finished.  I spent almost as much time on the mouse as I did on the snake.

I used redwood and put a clear satin finish without stain.

The rattlesnake has approximately 4,000 individually made scales that are then painted with at least two different colors each.
