Elaborate Trunk Carvings
Dead Trees are Turned into a Stunning Tree Stump Sculpture Series

By: Gil Haddi (Superstar) Jun 17, 13

Where most people see a dead tree, Russian artist Igor Dzheknavarov sees a glorious tree stump sculpture, just like one of the many he has designed to decorate the streets of Ukrainian city Simferopol.

Not harming any live trees in his creative pursuits, this self-taught artist works with only dead tree trunks, whittling them down and giving them new life as incredibly detailed statues, often featuring human figures. The designs are not commissioned or privatized as anyone has access to the public spaces in which they are located, making the environment that much more attractive and lively.

A welcome form of guerrilla street art, the tree stump sculpture series by Igor Dzheknavarov is environmentally friendly.
