Hook 'Em Horns Tree

A dead tree has been carved into the "Hook 'Em Horns" symbol used by UT (University of Texas) fans.

[Brad, 12/31/2013]

Homeowner Gabriel Trinidad hired chainsaw artist Doug Moreland to sculpt the dead tree on his front lawn into the seven-foot-high artwork. It's rigged with LEDs so that it can glow burnt orange (the UT color) after every win.
