Cutting wood

Friday, April 18th, 2014

Living in Norway, wood plays an important role; most houses (except those in the main cities) are made of wood, and fireplaces use wood to heat up the house during the cold winter months. Besides that, there are a shitload of trees in this country, making nature here an absolutely stunning experience! If I would have the time and the talent, I would chop down one of those trees and start wood carving…why? Well, why not? The result can be amaaaazing!!

I don’t want to spoil the surprise, so the picture below is just the start (‘the’ tree), just click this link for the full article and let yourself be surprised with the end result…WoW! “One tree, four years of work and an indescribable amount of talent: that’s what it took to create this incredible masterpiece. A famous Chinese wood carver chopped down a single tree and tirelessly worked on it for over four years to make this piece. Your jaw will hit the floor when you see what he created.”
