Man Carves Sculpture Of Dwayne Johnson From A Tree

The Rock has been crafted from an oak tree. Talented sculptor James O'Neal has painstakingly fashioned Dwayne Johnson from wood. The life-like sculpture was carved from a single piece of a red oak log. It stands 8' 3" tall, weights 428 pounds, and took just over 6 months to complete. James, from Bridgeton, New Jersey, has previously crafted homages including Sylvester Stallone's Rocky character, as well as the Austrian oak himself: Arnold Schwarzenegger. He tells Cover Images (COVER-IMAGES.COM): “I have not heard if Dwayne has seen it yet, but I did hear that he was told about it last week, so hopefully he will reach out. It is my ninth full size statue."
