Iowa Carver Creates New Art From Damaged Tree
CRESCO, Iowa -- Just in time for Easter weekend, a northern Iowa church has a new statue that tells quite the story. Last year, a tornado hit the town of Cresco, splitting a massive tree outside the Bible Center. There was no way the tree could be saved, but the church also didn't want to chop down more than a century of history. An Iowa chainsaw carver hatched a plan and this week helped turn what was left of the trunk into a sculpture of God's hands.
