Woodcarvings











These photographs were taken by my partner Mark, these were some amazing wood carvings we saw on our travels round the Island today. The Hare and the Magpies were in Arreton, carved into a cut down tree stump.
The second The Koi, was in Godshill a small part of the car park was given to a little peaceful place to sit and contemplate and was in rememberance of Matthew, a young man who passed away, and was commissioned by his family. A beautiful tribute.
These are great photographs of amazing art with heart, and given that Mark only had the camera passed to him, and not years of slog and hard experience, they were far too good so he had to be punished, hence the stocks.

Hi Lin,
I saw these too, they really are fantastic.
There is a man down towards the duver in Seaview who does them I think.
Sorry not been in touch for a while, been away being my sister Maureen's chemo buddy.
