The Big Folk Art Head of Peter Fuoco Carving Sculpture


CLICK TO MAKE BIG HEAD EVEN BIGGER


Peter Fuoco of Revelstoke, British Columbia discovered a big head in a tree trunk and spent some time bringing out the features, then added an equally giant hat. Dubbed "Ol' Woodenhead." A sign was placed next to it which read: "Don't be Wooden Headed. Drive Carefully. You'll live to enjoy the scenery more and longer." So beloved, the giant fellow was moved to his own "Woodenhead Park" next to the Trans-Canada Highway bridge. The second photograph here belongs to the Revelstoke Museum.

  1. Thanks for researching! Had no idea what that sculpture was. Does it still exist?
