Fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s works The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit will no doubt find great appeal in sculptor Kim Graham’s works. One of her largest projects to date, Graham’s friendly tree troll sits quietly in the pacific northwest and happily entertains visitors.
The sculpture is made out of reclaimed lumber, cardboard, and paper mache. And unlike a majority of sculptures, the troll was meant to be interacted with. Graham said she wanted viewers to feel free to take pictures with the benevolent troll and so she purposefully made him to look incomplete without someone posing beside him.
