Giant Hand of Vyrnwy

So, the tallest tree in Wales was hit by lightning, but instead of tearing it down, the artist Simon O’Rourke transformed it into a magnificent sculpture.

With a CHAINSAW.


Artist Simon O’Rourke used a chainsaw to carve a giant hand emerging from a tree stump.
Creating the piece was an intense process. O’Rourke worked in a scaffold and formed the hand over the course of six days.

The sculpture is now near Lake Vyrnwy, a reservoir in Powys, Wales where everyone can enjoy it.
