Skinny Carved Old Man

His name is Mr. Natural, and he is in front of a bar that used to be called The Sawblade.

Skinny Carved Old Man

This is a peculiarly tall and skinny sculpture carved from a redwood tree of a bearded mountain man in his bare feet. Folklore hero?

He's pointing to a deserted store stripped of its signage, so that's no help.
