The Visitor - Dead Wood Sculpture

The Visitor is the third sculpture made from dead wood. The wood was collected in Holt Cemetery in New Orleans and came from a Live Oak that we call the Aware Tree due to the fact that he is guardian to the graves in the center of the cemetery. He takes his job seriously and does not like visitors. I was fortunate that he was willing to give up a part of himself for this sculpture.

This unique piece of wood had several faces in it. I settled on this aspect because it reminded me of a visitor from another dimension. It is set in natural clay and foaming glue on a tile base with metallic acrylics for the color and then polyurethane to coat the wood and seal it. 

He comes with a certificate of authenticity, signed, dated and finger printed by the artist and verifies that he is the third sculpture in this series. 

This fellow is only available through the studio. For information on making him a part of your art collection contact us at
