Terry Fox is such an inspirational Canadian icon for the fight to beat cancer. I was asked to carve a facsimile of Terry Fox in a white pine stump at the front of the Country Gables B&B near Havelock. Doug and Elaine, the owners of the B&B, billeted Terry Fox in Havelock during his epic cross country run in 1980. In addition to this, Elaine designed the ‘Marathon of Hope’ shirt that Terry wore through the remainder of his journey to Thunder Bay. What a back story to this carving! I hope I did justice to Terry’s legacy.
Below are some images of the carving. It was challenging carving a running man into a round log. This is a high relief carving.
