The Mermaid Tree
In Hull, East Yorkshire (in the UK), local sculptor Kevin Storch sculpted an angel from a living tree during September and October 1998.
This site documents the whole process, over 30 days, with pictures of Kevin at work every day.
There are pages for the other sculptures being created in The Avenues. To date, the Owl Tree in Victoria Avenue, the Cat Tree in Richmond Avenue, the Children's Tree in Park Avenue, and this year - the Mermaid in Salisbury Street.
There's info on the district in Hull where the sculptures stand, known locally as "The Avenues", and a page of links to local and art-related sites.
