The newest piece of artwork in Sylvan Lake’s downtown was completed last week when chain saw sculptor Darren Jones of Rimbey finished carving a totem pole at Chief ’s Pub & Eatery.

Jones estimated he spent three solid days carving the various figures into the stump of an old elm tree which was cut down last year. He carved the top ‘Chief ’ character early last month and finished the others last week.

Jones has been practising his craft for the past 16 years. More about Jones is available on his website at www.cabstudio.ca.
