The national elections are close upon us here in the United States, and as a result we are neck deep in all the usual political folderol. Politicians have long been the delightful subjects of caricature, and carvers certainly have a place at that table.

These wonderful caricatures of President George W. Bush and Senator John Kerry are the work of Rhode Island resident Bill Gilbert, a member of the Central Mass Caricature Carvers. Bill was kind enough to carve these two pieces specifically to share with our WOM readers. We have included a photo gallery for each caricature as well as a sizeable pattern that you may download for your personal use.
