Got this photo from “GoGo Gomez”, who found this old tree stump in a Concord park. Looks like somebody worked hard to create this piece of art.
I wish we had more stuff like this in CLAYCORD, it’s cool!
Thanks to “GoGo” for the photo!
Wood carved animals always make me smile. I love this!
This is actually the second one that was created at the park. This first one wasn’t attached to the stump and someone stole it.
Awesome. Almost as awesome as a dinosaur on a roof top.
that bear is at the Brazil Quarry park on Kent. Great family park. Our neighborhood and the city of concord many years ago planted all the trees and built the park-it’s nice to see some creativity even if the tree had to go.
We should hide it before Leone puts a sign on it!
Nice snapshot, GoGo!
Cool,,,, San Leandro has dead black bears and Concord has white bears… Please don’t call me a racist, etc, etc, etc. Mearly a fact………..
As I frequent the parks with my dog, I noticed that they seem to maintaining at a lesser level. I asked if I could help by pruning branches (broken by vandals)
I was told it wasnt a good idea as there are city rules and you cant have everyone cutting as they please. However its nice to see someone has a good sense of creativity. I do not like the vandalisium I see at Brubeck and across the street. I would like to set up cameras the catch the bastards that cut down a tree at the entrance. Maybe I’ll go to jail for invading someones privacy.
That little bear is a WorkS of Art .my father carved that peice .He past away june 20,2001 …..He has done quite a few pieces like this.Art Sanchez was my father
There’s bears in Concord!!! Dang it, there goes the neighborhood!
I like it! Much better than some vandals tagging something.
Very artistic! The city should promote projects like these around town with local talent to spruce up our town! (Privately financed, of course.)
Unfortunately with the new exposure, it will be torched/mutilated/graffiti’d. Next week the Mayor will be posting this news.
David your Father, Art Sanchez was a Great American.
I love that someone does something for all of us and doesn’t make a big tado about it. Just for the sake of making the day a bit brighter and happier for another human being.
God Bless him and may he rest in peace.
And the world is a better place because of Art.
Thank you Art!!
There are several in Clayton … rabbit and owl by Keller House and the bridge to the library. And a bear over near the path up to Mt. Diablo Elem. although I think that is the one that is falling apart [rot]
Ah, breaker, Pig Pen, this here’s the Duck. And, you wanna back off them hogs? Yeah, 10-4, ’bout five mile or so. Ten, roger. Them hogs is gettin’ in-tense up here.
By the time we got into Tulsa Town,
We had eighty-five trucks in all.
But they’s a roadblock up on the cloverleaf,
And them bears was wall-to-wall.
Yeah, them smokies is thick as bugs on a bumper;
They even had a bear in the air!
I says, “Callin’ all trucks, this here’s the Duck.
“We about to go a-huntin’ bear.”
‘Cause we got a great big convoy
Rockin’ through the night.
Yeah, we got a great big convoy,
Ain’t she a beautiful sight?
Come on and join our convoy
Ain’t nothin’ gonna get in our way.
We gonna roll this truckin’ convoy
‘Cross the U-S-A.
There is also a cute little one at Newhal Park in Concord, my dog always tries to play with it, and then gets frustrated when it doesn’t move=)
There’s one at Markham too isn’t there?
This was just carved this summer. How could your father have done it if he passed away 9 years ago?
I go to this park almost everyday and I think it was late spring of this year when they did this.Maybe you meant to say June of 2010.Just wondering!
i dont think it was done by art sanchez looks like the work of a guy in a orange shirt named ” woodchuck ” he knows what that means haha
I am the dude who called to have the trees maintained. After the BIG windstorm at the end of winter, several high branches were broken and hung high, precariously so, above the paved walking path at this park.
so, in feb and march they came to chop the dead ones. They had huge logs and some they were goofing with. Guy made a christmas tree and another, more crude and less refined bear. They weren’t stolen, they were loose logs cut craftily and someone took them. No different than scrap wood if I ain’t tied down.
cool just the same. There is also a duck shaped seatback some kids broke, there is a throne carved out of a stump too.
I like it and welcome more in the future.
Anon, It seems to me that you are quite the DICK Tracey, here’s a thought why don’t you pull out your forensic’s kit and do some carbon dating so we can put an end to this mystery? I’m sure you would agree since it seems to me that you know everything!
