Mr. Haifley's first "toothpick" sculpture. The Christ sculpture which he named "The Gift" is 6'-0" tall (life size), and contains over 75,000 toothpicks. Working just a few hours a day, Mr. Haifley completed "The Gift" in approximately 5 years. Once completed, he overlaid the entire sculpture with 8-9 coats of marine resin which gives it tremendous strength and durability, as well as a beautiful golden amber look.
In 1991, Mr. Haifley sold "The Gift" to an art collector in California.
