Apparently this is a thing, to have your dead tree turned into a work of art.
I’ve been driving past this guy for several years now. Might he be described as a “wood wizard”? Today I finally made time to pull over and photograph him 🙂
If you have a dead tree and would like to turn it into art, just Google your general location and the search terms “carved tree art” and “stump sculpture” or even “chainsaw stump art sculpture” to find someone who can make that happen.
You could also try using similar search terms in Pinterest or Google Images to pull up inspirational examples of what other people have done.
Just now I was able to find images both beautiful and whimsical:
- a giant leaf
- inset hearts, personalized with people’s names
- one of the Easter Island stone faces
- a pair of climbing bear cubs
- a baby in the womb
And my favorite: a tiny little house with steps leading up to the front stoop and and open door where a friendly gnome is waiting to welcome you inside.
