Today the Departments of Astonishing Optical Illusions and Wondrous Woodworking took a field trip to a children’s park in Craiova, Romania to check out this awesome chainsaw carving by Romanian artist Gabi Rizea. Using what remained of a rotten ash tree, Rizea transformed the stump into a giant floating bucket with water spilling out.
Smoothly flowing down, the wood grain gives extra movement and texture to the “water” pouring from the bucket. Especially captivating is how the water blends into the raw stump, with one section smoothly flowing down, almost touching the ground. Certain to delight the children at the park, Rizea demonstrates through his wood sculpture how the imagination is just as powerful as any chainsaw.
