Every day you see two bear cubs wandering across the hood of a pickup, while a polar bear dressed in blue overalls greets a young girl while a wolf howls in a suburban school hallway. Just watch the National Geographic Network - you'll see for yourself. Either that, or a lifelike creation that took shape with chainsaw in the hands of master carver Bob Eigenrauch managed to quickly catch your attention.
Part of the magic of chainsaw carving is the scale, they are generally close to if not full scale models of creatures. From the fur to the nose to the ears to the paws, almost every detail can be imparted into the carving through precision twists and turns of specialized carving chainsaws.
What's most amazing is that figures don't just have to stand there, you can give them jobs! The first little bear stands up to show everyone your name, while his friend cards the mail, and the raccoon extends a simple welcome message. Oh, and lets not forget the bear steeling the honey jar on the right.
Bears, Wolves, Fox, Dogs, Cats, Raccoons, & Bunnies! Creative visions of nature at play or even at work holding your mailbox. Wild and domestic creatures can be carved to scale or life size!
Meanwhile the rest of the wildlife gang is busy at play.
More domestic breeds haven't been forgotten. Statues of dogs, cats, horses, cows, pigs, and other common creatures can be carved in life size.
Want to confuse your pet? Have a statue of he or she carved and place it nearby. We're not quite sure which is more entertaining, this trick or putting peanut butter on a dogs tail.
