Wood Carver Turns Tree Stumps Into Works Of Art

Jan 20, 2015

Sometimes, hard work can reap totally unexpected benefits. One family was recently ridding their land of dead trees when their son spotted what seemed like the perfect stump for carving. After eagerly sharing the project online, their son caught the attention of accomplished carver Steve Kenzora. Before the stump was sculpted, the family simply had one request: “No men. All these sculptures are always old men or warriors or wizards, I want a woman, or animal.” Steve got straight to work and the finished product looked like a scene right out of a storybook.

Some people might only see a tree stump. 

This artist saw much more than that. 

Carefully using a chainsaw, he sculpted a dragon out of the tree. 


As well as a tower for the beast to climb. 

The end result? Epic. 

This is the type of unique yard art that any family would be fortunate to have. Share this with your friends and family – it’s just too awesome to ignore.
