|A particularly interesting example of these portraits is Devil. The hand stroking his chin becomes a gesture that signals his calculating and wily temperament. Tim likes to carve stone into people and characters that he is familiar with. Perhaps this is a 'coal company lawyer from NYC' or a 'rascally politician from Washington D.C' Whatever his true identity, this mysterious stranger represents the outsider that Tim's mountain brethren all recognize as someone to distrust and avoid.
