The Amazing Tree Stump Carvings of Druid Hill Park

3 Written by: | Wednesday, Nov 28, 2012 11:03am

Some people hug trees; Mark Acton takes a chainsaw to them to create delightful druid-face sculptures. Acton, who was enlisted by the Friends of Druid Hill Park to spruce up some stumps, wields a chainsaw with as much grace as if it were a paintbrush. More images of his new work in Druid Hill Park below:

Acton’s sculptures are meant to convey the weathered faces of actual druids, a tribute to the park’s name.

Acton’s first sculpture was inspired by the Green Man, which is “the ever-returning energy of vegetation and wild Nature,” at least according to spiralgoddess.com.

Pay a visit to Acton’s sculptures, which are located near the entrance to the zoo in Druid Hill Park.

    I am planning a resurrection of the Art Show that was held around the Reservoir in Druid Hill Park for the 150th anniversary of the lake. I would love to be able to include an option to visit the sculptures. Is that possible.? Thanks, Barbara

  • Beautiful and creative use of natural resources. Are Mr. Acton’s works or his sculpting services available in Anne Arundel County?
