Someone had the bright idea of carving a four metre tall cassowary from one of the fallen kauri pines at the Tully Showground. A couple of the mature trees were felled by Cyclone Yasi:
Work on the carving started on the first day of this years Tully Show.
Six days later and the work is still in progress.
I chatted to the chainsaw artist and he told me he’d gone through three chainsaws, five blades and 15 resharpens during the six days.
More pix to come when it’s finished.
