I was stumped!!! But, seriously... it's pretty cool, just follow the rings and where the branches occur and you have a perfect tree inside the tree. An idea so simple, it had to take a while for someone to think of it.

Can he whittle the rings of fat off me to get me back to what I looked like in my mid 20s?

This is at the AGO downtown in Toronto. It is indeed an awesome piece. I studied it for 10 or 15 minutes in disbelief but it is a real carving.

If we get visited by aliens who happens to be evolved trees this would be atrocious to them.

Think about it... it's like carving a pretty young woman within a fat american.

Hauswyfe I think you missed the point. I assume, considering what the description says, my limited knowledge of trees and from the photo, that the sculptor has shaved away the rings of growth to reveal what the tree looked like when it was very young. As trees grow by adding rings once a year (the dark bit is the slower growth in the winter, the light bit us the faster growth in the summer) taking the tree back a certain number of layers is an interesting and pretty view of it's past.

He cut down an old-growth tree and then wittled it down to a stick? WTF?

Someone needs to tell that Asian guy that standing next to such enormous wood is not helping him.
