This chainsaw cut sculpture of a rooster has recently appeared in Paulnay, in the Brenne. It stands at the side of the main road through town, near the entrance to the sports field.
Having discovered, through his former trade as a forester (Fr. bûcheron), the different qualities of woods, Patrick van Ingen from Prissac developed a real passion for the material. After several years of manual sculpting, he started seven years ago to carve with his chainsaw (Fr. tronçonneuse) and this rooster is a typical example of his work.
