The Swimmer: Stunning Wood Sculpture Carved From a Single Piece of Basswood

Slightly larger than life-size, the sculpture, called The Swimmer, was created by Artist Stefanie Rocknak. It is part of a 3-piece commission, The Triathlete. The other two pieces include The Biker and The Runner. Believe it or not, the artist takes a tree trunk-sized piece of wood and carves hyperrealistic figures of athletes into them as well as fine details like splashes of water. When you look at the sculpture, you actually can feel the wooden swimmer is trying hard to move forward. Really impressive!
