The carving positioned facing the street, with entrance to the Public Dock behind. The art was strapped to the sidewalk to keep it from wandering off.

A chair upon which tourists could sit with horses on either side and a woman behind. This sculpture was carved from a single piece of wood using a chainsaw.

A closer view of the detail on the side of the sculpture, swirls caved with a chainsaw. A vertical crack was the result of standing near the sea for too long.

A closer view of the woman's face. She looked serious, as if worried about the world at which she gazed.

A view of the carving face on with Salmon Harbor behind. This sculpture sat alone on a sidewalk with just a few spits of land behind and then nothing but the vast Pacific Ocean.
