THE wings of this intricately carved wooden owl look like they have been chiselled into shape with a tiny scalpel.
In fact, they were created using a chainsaw. The sculpture is the latest work from Chris Bain, known as the Chainsaw Sculptor.
The 50-year-old from Clanfield started creating the one-off pieces as a full-time job when he lost his chainsaw training business four years ago.
He has gone from strength to strength and has a workshop at Staunton Country Park.
He said: ‘For the owl I’m using a beautiful piece of timber, a giant redwood.
‘It’s quite a rare piece of wood to get because they rarely fall. But this is small. I’m used to creating life-sized horses and even dragons.’
