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.


  1. Really like all the tree sculptures I've seen. This one is different and very special.

  2. What an excellent idea for an old tree trunk, it looks good a year and a bit on, weathering nicely!
