VIA| If you’re a homeowner, you know that sometimes trees need to be cut down in order to keep you and your family safe. During a storm, precarious branches can be knocked down. These can fall on your roof or your vehicle.
So when a friend called Lueb Popoff to remove a tree, he had a special mission. Yes, he would cut down her tree. But instead of leaving an eyesore stump? He was going to create a masterpiece…
For more than two weeks, Popoff worked to craft the stump into a beautiful sculpture.
Where an ugly reminder of the tree would usually remain, Popoff turned the stump into something absolutely gorgeous.
With just his chainsaw, the artist can make intricate cuts and details that will mesmerize you.
His masterful ability to use the often-times harsh chainsaw in a creative way is mind-blowing.
Popoff creates a woodland creature scene that would make any homeowner proud. The foxes and other critters seem to be climbing up and around the stump.
He also paints them so they pop visually even more than the natural wood coloring.
Watch the 2-minute video below to see Popoff on the scene and what his 2-weeks’ worth of work really produces.
