Summit Avenue Fashion Model


Using a chain saw to carve statues from felled trees is popular in St. Paul.  One of my favorites is a woman on a boulevard in front of a stately home on Summit Avenue.  When the weather turns chilly or cold, some wag (the owner?) offers her a bit of warmth.  I need to go by during this bitter winter weather we have been having to see if she is wearing something warmer today.

  1. A shawl? Heck, she needs a winter parka over her shoulders after this week.

  2. Such a nice sculpture. I'm surprised someone hasn't given her a hat.

  7. they are really able to capture some great detail with a chain saw!! I like the shawls too. I wonder if they put her in a bikini when the weather get's too hot...or at least a nice sun hat.

  8. That's quite a skill and I've never understood how people do this. Chainsaws, for me, are so unwieldy and dangerous. I'd cut off my leg trying to carve a statue!

  10. There's a place up the valley from here that at least in the past has had large carved wood sculptures like these.

  11. That is very nice work for a chainsaw. I always have my eye out for a good chainsaw bear but they are hard to find.

  12. I like the whimsy of wrapping her in warmer clothing. It is a good sculpture.

  13. Someone must be making these shawls and want to show them!. I always like this kind of humor.

  14. Someone has a great sense of humour. I think she needs earmuffs and a hat too.
