I've been watching the progress of this mammoth carving for the last couple of months,
up in Idyllwild, California,
by artist David Roy.
These native birds are behind the bear.
I suspect the leg in the Cougar's mouth is residual from Halloween.
This shot doesn't really give you the full impression as to the scale of this carving, but
I would guess it to be approximately 14 to 16ft or so high. The massive tree/carving is mounted on a wooden sled that I summize will make it easier to transport to it's final destination once completed. This project was commissioned as an
Idyllwild Town Monument for the New Chamber of Commerce.
