Trees reborn as totems.

What do you do with a 120-year old Sequoia tree that was too damaged to live. You call Swiss artist Sylvio Asseo who will give it a new life as a totem.

 Today as we ambled near the lake, I had to snap pictures of one of his works.
I first ran into his sculpture with an owl totem across from where I lived. My late mother collected owls and she would have loved photos.

Trees are beautiful in and of themselves, but with this artist they have a second life with a different kind of beauty.
