Hand Carved Statue of Liberty

Commissioned by a retired judge and her attorney husband, the Statue of Liberty was carved by chainsaw artist Dennis Roghair, who carved most of the Minnesota State Fair chainsaw tree carvings and has won many national and international awards.

The location is in an area of beautiful old Victorian homes right in the middle of St. Paul. I watched this being carved about 2005 or so -- took about 2 weeks. I've seen school buses of kids visit, as well as police cars, many camera-toting international tourists, even several fire trucks loaded with firemen.
