Astonishing Wood Sculptures by Dan Webb

I thought to look up a famous wood carver for this weeks post when I saw a wood carving shop on my route to Farmingdale State. What caught my eye was a huge carving of Godzilla. I got a picture of it while I was stopped at a red light. The point I am trying to make is inspiration and wonder can come from anywhere as long as your looking around.
