Re: Live Tree carving in Africa

Makes you wonder that you could carve a live tree in england? Or is it unethical

Re: Live Tree carving in Africa

That's amazing! Do you know what kind of tree that is? I'm wondering how it can survive that kind of thing? and also if the carving lasts, or does it get covered by come kind of callus growth?

Or maybe the carving is on some kind of creeper that's growing on the tree stem??

Sorry to burst your bubble guys. I could have sworn I'd visited that tree before, and I've never been to Africa...

The 3D movie was good though.
