Squirrel in Hyde Park
The sculpture of a squirrel with a nut was created from a Turkey Oak by Preston-based artist Thompson Dagnall.
The tree was diseased and had to be felled. Rather than remove the tree completely it was felled to a safe height so that it could be sculpted.
It has been here nearly two years now has developed a patina. See how it looked in December 2010 and how it looked under construction in March 2010.
