"Geisha" and "Sister Angels"

Tree Scultpures

1717 Ball, Galveston, TX (Directions)

These are two of the many tree sculptures carved after Hurricane Ike destroyed thousands of trees on the island. There are two separate sculptures at this location; “The Geisha” created by artist James Phillips and “Sister Angels” created by artist Dayle Lewis.

Geisha Tree Sculpture

‘The Geisha’ represents the homeowners love for the Orient and is a reminder of many trips to Japan. She is facing west to represent the direction you need to travel to get to Japan.

‘Sister Angels’ represents the homeowners two granddaughters. The Angels were the top of the tree that ‘The Geisha’ is carved from. This tree was as high as the wires above and touched the house. It is one of the only sculptures that is not rooted in the ground.
