The American Chiropractic Association estimates that 80% of the population will experience a back problem at some time in their lives. Given this statistic, what could be better advertising for a chiropractic office than a huge spinal column carved from a tree?
Columbus, Ohio chiropractor Dr. David Ryan, says of the skeletal sculpture:
“This is a 25-foot high spine that was carved out of a silver maple tree. The tree was dying and instead of just cutting it down, I decided to have it carved by Jack Cantley, a local chainsaw carving artist.
It took two weeks to carve and is lit up for night time viewing. The statue is named “Palmer” after the founder of chiropractic medicine and is dedicated to all the chiropractic patients and their doctors. Anyone is welcome to stop and visit for a photo. Great place to study your spinal anatomy.”
If the purpose of signage is to attract attention, then this creative, chain-saw sculpture is perfect.
