Randy Jewart, Director of Austin Green Art, delivered the “Cedar Man” sculpture to Maker Faire this week. This man made from cedar required a large crane to move into place. The Cedar Man, who is wielding a hammer, will also be known as Maker Man for this weekend’s Maker Faire.
The Maker Man is located in front of Bldg B, the Show Barn, and it’s a good place to meet up with friends. Just say: “Meet me at the Maker Man at 1pm.”
Update: This 30-foot tall cedar statue was made by artist George Sabra. It is modeled after the style of the Phoenicians, who used the wood from the cedar trees of their Lebanon home to make their sailing ships. Out of respect for this ancient civilization this statue is made of recycled cedar from Austin, Texas.
