Man converts tree stump into tribute to Boston sports teams
UPI News Service, 06/15/2016
A Massachussets man transformed a collection of tree stumps into a wooden sculpture celebrating Boston area sports teams.
Jesse Green, a professional sculptor whose use of a chainsaw earned him the nickname "The machine" shared photos of the wooden sculpture which he titled the "World Championship Tree."
"It's with great pride that I present my latest: Where is a tree more than just a tree? In New England!" Green wrote.
Green transformed the four stumps into human fingers bearing championship rings for each of Massachusetts major sports teams: The Boston Red Sox, Boston Celtics, Boston Bruins and New England Patriots.
According to CBS Boston, Green was born in Massachusetts and studied fine arts at UMass-Dartmouth where he sharpened his chainsaw sculpting skills.
