The Mysterious Tree Spirits

Tree spirits have quite a history to rely on, and the work of sculptor Keith Jennings gives them a face suitable for the legend. Jennings began his project way back in 1982 with a tree in his backyard. Soon, commissions for the Tree Spirits came his way and he showed his sculpting skills on trees in St. Simons Island. The imaginative carvings on trees show a face that could be treated and evoke the feelings of the ancient spirits of these trees. Quite an enchanting premise, and executed brilliantly.
