Today I’m participating in Where’s My Backpack’s Travel Theme photo challenge. This week’s theme is “sculpture”. If you like what you see, feel free to subscribe and receive nature photography updates a few times a week.

For this theme, I decided to use wood sculptures that were all created by the same person, David Roy from Idyllwild, California. You can find his wood sculptures as you walk around town, in front of people’s homes and local shops, and of course, right in the center of Idyllwild, with this huge town monument.

This is probably the biggest wood sculpture I saw while visiting his outside workshop. This Buddha statue below is unfinished at this point but it shows this artist doesn’t only carve animals. Not that I don’t like this animal sculptures. They all look great. My own Buddha wood sculpture at home would fit in the hand of this Buddha.

Check out this lifesize wood sculpture of a bear – impressive!

Here’s another bear wood sculpture, this one a little similar to the town monument, but smaller.

I also love the various animals he has peeking out of tree trunks. Very cute!
