Beer Nuts was carved at England's Wimberley Mills by Monique Baldwin. It is the second piece to chronicle the Canadian adventures of Mad Murphy and his buddy Moose. It includes such Canadian icons as the Maple Leaf on the Moose's blanket, the Mounties hat on his head, and two beavers - Canada's national animal. Mad Murphy is inside, but is he hiding from the RCMP, or has he just had a few too many Canadian beers?
