Large Wooden Woman

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.

Large Wooden Woman

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!

Does a wooden giantess help or hamper resale value? Fingers crossed that whoever buys the house also keeps the Lady.

Woman sculpture.

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.
