Michael McGillis [1] created this timeless log sculpture ‘Wake,’ [2] 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 [3] 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.
