Guy-Paul Treefall, Pointing Lumberjack

Guy-Paul Treefall is telling a story and using his hand / finger to make a point.

20-Foot-Tall Guy-Paul Treefall

Standing 20 feet tall, an axe at his side, Guy-Paul Treefall -- nicknamed "The Storyteller" or in French, "Le Raconteur" -- is a massive lumberjack beckoning tourists into the small paper mill town. Along with a new log cabin-esque Artisan and Craft Display and Information Centre, the lumberjack is a tie to Iroquois Falls' forestry history, which is the reason for the town's existence. The sculpture was crafted by artist Denys Heppell from Saint-Jean-Port-Joli, Quebec.
