The Gaia Spirit Tree 1.5 years after completion.. (20 ft Totem pole)

Located just off of Streatham /Tulse hill here http://www.terrafirmalandscapes.com/

Im pleased the weathering has given it more character

Mio steps in to show us the scale of the beast

 Carved with chainsaws, angle grinders, chisels and handtools in 3 months in the middle of winter

Walking around in 1-2foot snow with a live chainsaw to cut the wings from a big log

The was the most extreme sculpture job ive had to date

The KingFisher sits on the "All seeing Eye of Rainbow Awareness"

Gaia spirit rests with a flower to hand 
The back of this faces the Tulse Hill station railway line- 
commuters see it day in day out for 2 seconds at a time heading to the deskjob at 60MPH

It even survived the recent riots intact...

Some of the products of the Garden centre in the yard it sits in
