The Hobbit Carved Tree Sculpture
1102 N Anderson St
Left with the 10-foot stump of a fir tree in his front yard, Tacoma resident Ross Barde brought in Bruce "Thor" Thorsteinson to create an elaborate chainsaw carving featuring The Hobbit's Gandalf (the wizard) and Smaug (the dragon). When you see how elaborate it is, it's all the more impressive that something like this could be created in just eight days.
Barde has added a small Norse totem to his front yard as well. The carvings in combination the flowers makes for a pretty eye-catching Tacoma home.
