That is so cool, Debby. We have a tree trunk that is just about that height, sitting amidst a row of tall hedges that acts as a border between our yard and our neighbor's yard. I've been thinking how cool it would be to carve it and there you go and show me just how cool it would be. Now all I need to do is to learn how to carve.

Actually, Jim, we live in an urban neighborhood just 15 minutes from downtown Denver. Our neighborhood is full of artist/activist types and someone always knows someone who specializes in whatever you are looking for. The family tree is owned by an artist/jeweler who got one of her artist friends to carve the faces from family photos. The tree angel was a commission. We watched the sculptor for weeks working on cylindrical scaffolding, carving around the trunk.

Wow - I never saw that sort of thing before in a suburban neighborhood. Who carves them - the residents or someone who does it for a living?
