“Deanna Pindell (Port Hadlock) has imported segments of another fallen woods soldier, this one a giant old willow that met the chopping block because it was "too messy.'
Pindell has created a memorial by mounting a segrnent of one of its massive trunks as if it were the bronze statue of an anonymous amputee veteran. Blanched to a ghostly palor and stained blue in it’s sunken fissures, it has a mummified anatomical aspect that makes it seem almost human.”

One branch from an ancient tree serves as a memorial, and is balanced by a deep void dug into the earth.
