Live a few blocks away. Its no longer there, he cut it down summer of 2013. Good riddance to a major eyesore in a nice town.[Ryan, 07/25/2013]
Large tree carved to look like a woman is now "dressed" like a ReMax real estate saleswoman. House was up for sale. Don't know if it sold, but Lady remains![Lynda Richey, 07/27/2012]
Does a wooden giantess help or hamper resale value? Fingers crossed that whoever buys the house also keeps the Lady.
Large Wooden Woman
A very tall woman carved out of wood located in the front yard of a house. The owners apparently repaint it frequently; when I saw it this summer she was wearing a pink swimsuit. Now I hear she is painted red for the holiday season.
VERY one-of-a-kind. The buggy eyes really creep me out.[ChicagoCindy, 12/18/2007]
