Thank you, I am on my way there right now to take a look and see! I fink that art so darn impressive! Let it be done with fabric, wood or machine parts, you have to have a great talent to represent the real thing!

Sort of reminds me of the carved tree stumps in Galveston. After Katrina, many very old trees were downed, and the resourceful artists of Galveston were not content to leave the stumps as sad reminders, so they carved them into the most amazing likenesses. Take a photographic tour at:

There are still more stumps waiting to be carved, too.
