ABC Wednesday
W is for Wood Sculpture

I showed you this wood sculpture in Hyde Park back in March when it was still an enigma.

The sculpture of a squirrel with a nut was created from a Turkey Oak by Preston-based artist Thompson Dagnall.

The tree was diseased and had to be felled. Rather than remove the tree completely it was felled to a safe height so that it could be sculpted.

Further W posts can be found on ABC Wednesday.

The felled tree was used for something creative and beautiful Gerald.

I like it when they are able to use the trunk of downed trees for sculpture. Yours is a great example.
