Loxton Tree sculpturesFree
Lopped Aleppo Pine trees provided the opportunity for the trunks to be sculptured into public art. Riverland artist Tim Baulderstone was commissioned to carve the sculptures, shaping and carving the trunks with a chainsaw and an angle grinder. Year 9 art students from Loxton High School were given a particular tree to design, with the brief being native animals, flora or fauna. Designs, concepts and clay models were created prior to carving. Wander the path through the conservation park and see for yourself these 16 incredible tree carvings, including a frill-necked lizard, sulphur-crested cockatoo, goanna, eagle and a possum.
