6 months after my father passed on, I had a dream of him sitting gently in the woods having become a tree himself. I awoke with the knowledge this sculpture had to be built and immediately so. 23 of my close friends volunteered their time and energy to see it done within that month. It was a beautiful act of community and kindness. The Tree Troll toured charitable events for two years before being sold to the Bellagio Casino in Las Vegas, where he resides to this day.
