Kim Beaton Creates Tree Troll Inspired by Her Father

Posted by Deepika singh on 27 Jun 2013 11:29 PM

Artist Kim Beaton constructed an enormous 12 feet structure commonly referred to as Tree Troll exclusively out of non-toxic materials.(paper, glue, acrylic paint, wood, screws, metal plates) It took Kim 15 days and a team of 25 volunteers to create this unique tree troll. The tree has been designed keeping in mind the image of the sculptor's late father Hezzie Strombo, a former lumberjack in Montana.
The Bellagio Casino bought the tree and now its on display in a climate-controlled environment for 2 1/2 months of the year, around Thanksgiving. About a quarter million people get to admire him during that time.
