I found this piece of Live Oak with a ingrown concrete block.
18×13x12.
I carved it into a abstract face and did a buffed finish.

Very unique. A tree that ate a concrete block. Note the massive stretch marks on that stomach! Beautiful wood by the way.

Very creative approach to utilize materials to form an art piece.

As to the concrete, I had three huge Maple trees taken down last year. The tree guy found concrete in two, and said that ages past this was commonly used to fill hollows.

It’s 18×13x12 and is 25lb.
The concrete was used to hold the branch of the ground and the tree grew around it.

I’m now headed to the woods with some concrete blocks and an old plastic chicken I found. I will update you with my results in 2040.
