I was Commissioned by Birmingham City Council to carve a large Cedar trunk fronting the viewing platform in Ley Hill Park Birmingham.
The ‘man from the ground’ has emerged. He is a viewer from the viewing platform at the top of the park. A 4ft diameter Cedar tree was felled because of damage and safety issues. I am carving an 8 meter length of it.
The carving represents the male in nature, complementing the female carved on the nearby Scots Pine in 2008. He lives in the ground, he may be coming out or going in depending on how he feels. His hair spreads across the ground and can be sat on (ie a carved seat in the hair) Further ideas for carvings on the Cedar are ruminating and he may have a Kunzle cake to eat.
