"Train Engineer" is one of the many tree sculptures carved after Hurricane Ike destroyed thousands of trees on the island.
This is a smaller sculpture located near the Railroad Museum parking lot. Many of the tree sculptures are located within the East End Historic District, however, this one can be found downtown near the Strand. This is an example of a sculpture that is located off the beaten path of the traditional tour.
James D. Phillips has carved trees at residences all over Texas. His art can also be seen in front yards and on the grounds of public buildings all over Galveston Island. Some highlights of James’ include “The Wizard of Oz,” “Geisha,” “Pelican Diving into a School of Fish,” and “Fireplug” at City Hall.
