These fabulous wood sculptures were on show at Gumbostrand Konst & Form created by Robert Lappalainen. This is how former race car driver, nowadays wood artist Lappalainen (b. 1949) presents himself:
"On my own farm, I cut down the trees myself and after drying them, unique art is created. I am excited as a little boy about my new profession, so it will be a long day at the workshop. I often sit for long periods of time in my studio and think, what I am going to do with that huge tree trunk. In the end it turns into a beautiful unique work of art. Before it is finished it has been worked for months, piece by piece towards the end result. When the piece is finished, I hug it and thank it for the wonderful time together, because the tree has done the greatest job growing for 150 years and I only spent a few months on it.”
