Woodspirit Canoe Paddle

Here's an interesting bit of paddle decoration. From the BWCA Forums
is this post of laminated paddle with modern "voyageur" style blade and tripper grip. The area at the base of the grip has been carved with a Wood Spirit motif...

Wood Spirit Tripping Paddle

Always wanted to try my hand at carving something like this...might be nice to add a touch of flair to an otherwise mediocre laminated paddle. Still, I'd be afraid to mess up the carving until I get more practice. For those interested, there is a lengthy (33 pages!) and pic heavy post on Bushcraft USA that offers a very clear step by step tutorials on wood spirit carving.
