Why, all this work and for what purpose ? No, dislike.

I think he is teaching children and adults that one can make sculptures and interesting things with nature. One is not having to dig up the ground to leave concrete statues. He uses what is there without chopping down trees or digging into the earth. We need to have people use their creative minds to think outside the box and not always be thinking of the usual ways.

Many things could come out of this when the minds of children are exposed to nature and working with it not against it. Perhaps new ways of making homes that require less resources or trees chopped down to do so.
That too me is purpose but I understand that others would prefer to leave things as is. Until we have a society that feels that way, across the earth we at least need to move them towards a greener way of doing things.

I was definitely impressed with this artist's talent but pondered all the questions you brought up on your news letter. I must say I completely agree with your post, especially sharing, " when the minds of children are exposed to nature and working with it not against it." May I add when the minds and wills of all ages to work with nature and not against it. Whether this is a theme park for a fee or not (I imagine it is and well worth it) he has shared his talents for any and all to improve upon in limitless imaginations of artists and naturalists alike! Thank you dearly!
