A few month ago when walking through Ellington Park in Ramsgate I saw this beautiful woodcarving. I am very glad that it hasn't been vandalised and I admire it every time I walk through the park. For a while I didn't know who the sculptor was but a friend found the story in the local paper and from that I found Andrew Stevens website.
Last Friday some more carvings had just been finished - two owls and a squirrel. Another tree stump near the main entrance to the park was used for these. I walked all around them to see every detail.
By Monday morning the wood had been burnt (in a similar way to the soldier) which brings a greater depth to the sculptures.
To the right of the park as you come in the main entrance a toadstool has been carved. I was thrilled when I looked closely to find a flight of steps and a fairy door at the top of them.
The work that THE FRIENDS OF ELLINGTON PARK are doing is fantastic. They are working so hard to make this park a pleasant place to be.
The big question now is .....
what is this going to be.
