These pictures were taken on a family trip to Jamaica during spring break in 2005.  It was interesting to me that if a tree died or if it was blown over, they didn't let it go to waste.  They would carve an image in the remaining part of the tree.  The first tree was right on the beach adjacent to the reclining chairs.  The second carving was done while we were staying in our room.  Our room was right behind this statue.  We woke up every morning to the sounds of a hatchet cutting away at the tree.  I guess they started early, because by midday they were busy partaking in a favorite local past time in Jamaica...
