Idyllwild Carving

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.

Wow, that is an amazing carving! I loved the shot with the leg in the cougar's mouth - too funny:)

Thank's Jen! The photos don't really do the carving justice or show how much detail the artist has truly put into the piece.
