If you go down to the woods today........ by LordLJCornellPhotos If you go down to the woods today........ by LordLJCornellPhotos
I just thought I'd share this with you. I was just walking around in the huge grounds of Cragside, which is a fantastic house in Northumberland, when I came upon this. What a fantastic thing to do to a fallen tree. Much better than turning it to pulp. I love it. 
I have done some research and the sculpture was made in 2010 by Tommy Craggs. The 'Green Man' face was carved into the trunk of the fallen tree which is a 140 year old Douglas fir and the piece is 
known as 'Douglas'

This should be the end of all trees!  How wonderful.  I have a friend who does something similar, or did something with a tree.

There was (probably still is) a primary school close to where I lived as a child, called Cragside :)

Do you know if they have used anything to preserve this amazing piece of work?

This is amazing! Whoever crafted this was very talented, although I would hate to be camping and run into it with just a flash-light on a potty run! lol
