Bear Carvings from Tree Stumps

Carving things out of trees (like totem poles), is nothing new, and seems to be a modern artistic outlet for out-of-work lumberjacks, and there are WAY too many unemployed lumberjacks out here in the western United States.
These carvings are located at a campground in St. Regis, Montana. (You can Click on photos to open large-size view.)
These are scattered throughout the campground and there are also other carvings, depicting fish, beaver and other animals. It's pretty cool.
I have to agree that these are works of art, and they remain here, in place, in their natural habitat, available for all to enjoy.

These have always amazed me and I would really love to have one. but, I have priced them at fairs and swamps and they are never cheap!

Happy weekend!:-)
