Imagine my surprise at finding this tree carving on a drive through Chester, Nova Scotia. It was in front of the post office, a tree that obviously needed to be removed, yet ended up being a wonderful wood carving by Adam Connolly and The Second Life For Trees program. I did a little snooping on the Internet and discovered that this program “comes from Adam Connolly’s vision of providing historical trees with a second life.” I thought wow! What a great idea. Rather than cutting down these historic trees they’re turned into works of art. You can check out Adam’s site and learn more about the program Here..
I’m continually awed by the many talented people in our area, and not just those with talent but those who have a vision. I’ve often grieved the sight of century old trees being removed. This is a wonderful alternative.
I can’t begin to imagine the hours of planning and work that went into this. Can you?
So many different angles and shots to get. My camera really doesn’t do the sculpture justice.
Have you come across any similiar sculptures that turn an existing part of nature into something beautiful and lasting?
