Ryuk is a character in the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. He is a bored Shinigami that drops a Death Note (a notebook that allows the user to kill anyone simply by knowing their name and face) into the human world in order to relieve his boredom. It's picked up by Light Yagami, an intelligent high school student who uses it in an attempt to create and rule a utopia cleansed of evil, with him at the helm as a "god".
The wood is 4" square and 1/4" thick walnut, cut by hand on a scroll saw. It's finished with 3 coats of a water-based polyurethane for water resistance, and backed with 1/8" thick cork painted to highlight the design - these deskorations can double as coasters! Walnut wood grain is quite variable, so every deskoration is unique.
Be sure to order a deskoration stand to display your Shinigami on your desk or mantel - you can find them here: https://centuryartisans.com/products/deskoration-stands
