Michael McGillis created this timeless log sculpture ‘Wake,’ which was a big success when it was completed in 2006. McGillis created a walkway using a long log-built structure in Franconia Sculpture Park in Shafer, Minnesota. With the ends painted purple and facing inwards to the visitors, McGillis constructed 95 feet of log fencing that combined natural wood and the starkly contrasting purple or a dramatic effect.

    I was very much impressed to see the beautiful purple log that acts as a fence, which you have shown in this sculpture park. Log fencing that is combined natural wood and starkly can give a dramatic look as well as privacy. I also deal with fencing supplies in and around California provides amazing fencing options for your residential and commercial project in cost effective manner. Thanks for nice view.
