Creativity with chainsaws!

This video clip shows the European Chainsaw Speed Carving Championship, held recently in Staffordshire, England. It's pretty amazing what they can do with tools that I'd always regarded as destructive rather than artistic!

I'm not sure that Michelangelo would recognize it as 'sculpture' in the traditional sense . . . but it's impressive nonetheless. Congratulations to all involved.

"If Michaelangelo had yada, yada" ... and if the mountain men had access to .50 BMG, they'd have used it, too. I've never quite understood that particular "logic". It doesn't diminish the work shown here, though.
