Carved in dead wood

Huge old trees that fall in the storms or threaten to fall are often cut and thrown in the dumps or burned. There is a great artist here who makes every dead tree trunk into a piece of art. This is little Simba he had carved in the dead wood. I have posted some of the other carving in a post a long time ago.

These huge pieces of art are sometimes auctioned for social causes. The artist himself doesn’t get much for his work, he does this as social service.  I spent sometime speaking to him and he said that he looks at the piece of wood and uses its natural structure to carve an image which suits it. Here are the legs of Simba which are barely carved. The cave itself is a huge cut that has healed . He does the a minimal amount of work on the wood and brings out its natural beauty.

Let’s play a game here –
