"Hand Clutching Diploma" is one of the many tree sculptures carved after Hurricane Ike destroyed thousands of trees on the island.

Hand Clutching Diploma Tree Sculpture

“Guitar” is located at the Wright Cuney Recreation Center. Although the bulk of the tree sculptures are located within the East End Historic District, if you are an avid sightseer you can find a couple that are elsewhere on the island. This sculpture is an example of one that is located off the beaten path of the traditional tour.
