Tree Sculpture: “Great Dane”2020-01-24T13:58:57-06:00

"Great Dane"

Tree Sculpture

1228 Sealy, Galveston, TX (Directions)

"Great Dane" is one of the many tree sculptures carved after Hurricane Ike destroyed thousands of trees on the island.

Great Dane Tree Sculpture

The homeowners owned a beautiful, gentle, grey Great Dane named Hunter. The tree had actually grown around the fence at the spot where the paws grip the fence. This Great Dane may be seasonally dressed on many occasions.

This sculpture sustained the only vandalism that we are aware of. Just after it was finished, someone stole one of the paws. The homeowner offered a reward…$50 for the return of the paw; $500 for the hands of the thief! The sculptor, who was still on the Island, carved and installed a new paw.
