The Work of Manolo García Carpinteria
We came across a few photos of an impressive giant wooden sculpture this morning. After some research we discovered that the work belongs to Manolo Garcia, a Spanish carpenter who specializes in not only interior design, but float building and what Google translate tells us are bonfires…

No one before Bernini had managed to make marble so carnal. In his nimble hands it would flatter and stream, quiver and sweat. His figures weep and shout, their torsos twist and run, and arch themselves in spasms of intense sensation. He could, like an alchemist, change one material into another - marble into trees, leaves, hair, and, of course, flesh.
- Simon Schama’s Power of Art. Bernini
