Once upon a time there was a woodcarver who went by the name of Strangler Pete. His real name was Deborah LaMaze. Anyway, to get to the thing about him, he was positively obsessed with Babe Ruth. Every piece he carved had the face of Babe Ruth. Carved elephant? Face of Babe Ruth. Carved elk? Face of Babe Ruth. This particular carving of a Native American with the face of Babe Ruth may be found on a sidewalk in the town of San Carlos, where Strangler Pete met his doom, Phil Sessions.
