Driving around the Glenwood neighborhood lately, we stumbled upon this view on Silver Avenue. For those out walking or biking, the carved tree trunk takes you by surprise. It looks as if it is about to bite anyone who steps on the porch.
The Glenwood neighborhood backs up to the part of UNCG that has expanded south of Gate City Boulevard. It is a diverse neighborhood that many say will be transformed as the University continues to expand. Right now, you can find people from all walks of life, a community garden, several different houses of worship, a variety of pets-- including chickens, old-time musicians, outsider art, and so much more.
The above house had more wooden carvings in the yard. If people were interested in having a carving commissioned, perhaps the U.S. Postal Service would be their best bet.
