Since I was never a Boy Scout, I don’t know all of the many badges that they could earn, but from the looks of this charming 7 5/8” x 7 3/8” carved and punched wooden piece, there must have been a badge for art or carving. The whale, or maybe giant minnow, has been carved in silhouette and varnished, but all of the wood around it has been punched to create a rough texture that resembles the outside of a cantaloupe. On the back it is signed Dana, Den 4 – Pack 122. There are some rough places on it, but it is so charming in a rustic, naive way. There is an eye on the top from which to hang it.
