Wichita, Kansas - Tree Trunk People

Wow this was a lucky find! I was lost and happened upon her. She has definitely seen better days. I wish others would post where more of these are. They are truly fascinating!

This one can be found in McKnight Park (McKnight St & Hydraulic St)

Wichita, Kansas - The Tree Trunk People

Whenever a big tree dies in a public space, a chainsaw artist crops the top off, and turns its trunk into a piece of art, usually resembling a person. Sometimes the sculptures are site-specific. For instance, tree trunk people near St. Francis Hospital resemble a nurse, a doctor, and a volunteer. There are also more of these little tree people in Riverside Park, and all over the downtown area.
