In fact the majority of outdoor lawn sculpture is. is wood not a common material? We know the farmhouse look has been popular for awhile and anything wooden dovetails with that well.

It was a wood sculpture of what I think was a bear or woodland animal and he had used, surprisingly, not knives but special jigsaw attachments. I don’t know if this was his first attempt but I was very impressed.
