Carved by Black Hearts Chainsaw Art
Our sitting elephant was an onsite carving done off of Hwy W outside of Eureka, Mo. Initially, the plan was to carve the piece onsite; unfortunately, once we got into the wood we found a large amount of rot in the trunk and a rather large hole in the center of the log.
After consulting with the client, we decided to move the operation back home, carve the elephant separately, and after completion, mount the elephant to the trunk as originally planned. Plan B turned out to be a success!
As with many of our custom carvings, our clients chose an elephant due to the symbolism it holds within their own life and we were honored to be chosen to bring their vision to life.
Fun fact about our Pink Flamingo...When we originally started carving it last year, we found a hole in his neck (which is an easy fix) - before plugging it, I had one of our twins draw a picture to put in the gap before we closed and sealed it. So, there is a secret treasure hidden within and a special memory for one of our little guys who will forever be a part of our Flamingo.
