Wood Man with Saw Sawn From Wood Folk Art
The last time I wrote about chainsaw carvers, I received hate mail from a chainsaw carver! Now I didn't see those slasher and slicer movies, but I do NOT want to piss off anyone with a chainsaw this time. So let's just say this is something for the contemporary chainsaw artist to aspire to.
Believe it or not, the chainsaw was invented back in 1785! Jeepers! That seems to be a long time to perfect the craft, and I will let others debate whether the craft IS an art this time. This is a good carving, no matter how it was done. I think it is art.
