Chainsaw Tree Sculpture
The McCann Park Tree Sculpture is a large scale artwork in McCann Park which has added significantly to the Bland Shire’s emerging art trail which also includes the Big Football at Ungarie, the Weethalle Silo mural, the Russell Drysdale Monument and Reg Rattey VC statue in West Wyalong.
One of the world’s best chainsaw carvers Brandon Kroon from Melbourne has created a spectacular wooden sculpture from a Redgum tree stump in West Wyalong’s McCann Park.
The sculpture showcases two local birds, the Wedge Tailed Eagle and the Mallee Fowl out of the very tough timber using a chainsaw.
The sculpture took about a week to complete and is a must see attraction in the beautiful surrounds of West Wyalong’s McCann Park on the junction of the Mid Western and Newell Highway.
Mr Kroon has been passionate about creating, fixing and working with his hands ever since he could remember, Mr Kroon first started carving professionally in 2013 and has since built a spectacular portfolio of artworks.
