Wood Artist Carves Fallen Logs into Adorable Forest Animals
Now living in Canada, Japanese wood carving artist and nature-lover Mori Kono creates impressively detailed woodland animal sculptures. The skilled artist and his team utilise locally sourced materials such as yellow and red cedar, alder, and birch wood. The ongoing sculpture series includes bears, raccoons, rabbits, owls, and chipmunks. Often carved to look like they’re crawling from trees, or positioned to hang from wooden logs, the impressive works capture the playful nature of each woodland critter.
