Talented artisan Jeffrey Michael Samudosky of JMS Wood Sculpture in Gig Harbor, Washington used a chainsaw to carve an absolutely stunning giant pacific octopus out of a large piece of wood from a fallen redwood tree. The enormous cephalopod took a great deal of time and effort, but the result is absolutely gorgeous.
Please take a moment to enjoy the images below of the Giant Pacific Octopus’ transformation. Also, a special thanks to our friend Redwood Burl for providing the wood used in this sculpture, and a beautiful location in which to carve it.
