"KEEPER OF THE WOODS" by Steve Sullentrup
Wood-carving artist Steve Sullentrup created “Keeper of the Woods” from a piece of cedar wood he found in a vacant lot next to Watts Bar Lake. Using his artistic mindset, Steve examined the raw piece of cedar trying to envision the potential that lay just beneath the wood’s surface. Steve hand-carved six beautiful images within the cedar branches: a wood spirit, a frog, an eagle, a pair of raccoons, a feather, and a heron. Sculpture Trail visitors will enjoy the challenge of locating all six images that reside within the “Keeper of the Woods” sculpture.
