I knocked on the door of the house next to the tree. Owner was very nice and explained the history. He is happy to share the tree with others.

Jesus Carved in Tree Trunk

Local artist Pete McCaskill has carved some tree stumps into amazing pieces of art! Jesus is located just behind Open Door Church near Old Town Burleson. He has also carved some pretty cool animals outside of a private residence off of FM 917 (visible from the road). He uses a chainsaw and a rotary power grinder.
