Crafted entirely from driftwood, the vast, thought-provoking masterpiece was created by sculptor Paul Baliker, 59, who describes it as a ‘call to action’. ‘I started out sculpting to put food on the table, I never dreamt of where it would lead,’ he said. ‘I hope that people can see the environmental message I attempt to portray, and perhaps think hard about the impact man has on the natural world’. Mr Baliker spent six months creating his masterpiece. Using chainsaws, sanders and rotary grinders, he carefully carved each element from cedar driftwood collected around the Gulf of Mexico. The sculpture, called A Matter Of Time, measures a massive 13ft by 13ft, dwarfing its creator, who says it’s been warmly received.
