Camera Critters 47

Our town's annual chainsaw carving rendezvous was two weeks ago. The carvers make these incredibly detailed pieces of art out of a log and a chainsaw. Thought I'd share a couple of my favorite pieces.

OK, technically, Anubis isn't an animal, he's a God, but he does have the head of a jackal, so I thought it would work. :)



For more information or to check out some of the awesome photos, stop by Camera Critters to learn more about it.

That is way awesome. There's a place we go by when we're in Vermont that does some amazing work but Anubis is really wow!

Hi Gretchen, thanks for the warm welcome. These are amazing carvings. I have heard about Anubis... Is there also a story behind the second one? Best wishes :)

Anubis works for me! It is unbelievable what they can do with a chain saw! All that detail is incredible. I have a difficult time using a chainsaw to chop a log in half!

Wow, the details in the carvings are amazing! I like the cat (I think it's a cat) at Anubis' feet.
