It Caught My Eye: Wood That I Knew!

img_9384.jpg img_9385.jpg The thumbnails at right won’t give you much more a clue than I had standing next to the strange stacked thing so click to humongify them and see if you might derive the origin and intention of this Faircrest Heights angular mod-oddity.

My uneducated guess is that since it’s base is the truncated trunk of a chopped-down arbor might it be a stylized Frank Gehry-esque homage perhaps to and of whatever once stood here on the east side of Crescent Heights south of Pico Boulevard? Woodn’t you agree, or am I barking up the wrong tree?

Opine away! Get it? O-pine? As in — no, you shut up!

  1. I like it. Urban art in its natural habitat. A for effort and execution for whomever did it. I can’t tell but it looks more like blocks stacked. Maybe an iron rod with each piece cut then drilled to slip over it?

  2. Could be a single rod, Fraz. I was thinking more that each block had an an individual post screwed into it that then fit in a corresponding drilled hole on the lower block.
