Chain saw art at Lockenhaus Castle

Chain saw art at Lockenhaus Castle, Austria

While I was trying to make some peaceful art like a painting several ladies of my group were interested to make something more adventourus. They joined a lesson in creating art with a chain saw instructed by Michael Schlapschy. After finishing my painting lesson I was curious to see how the ladies created things like racks for DVDs just by a tree trunk and a chain saw.

A ‘Eiserne Jungfrau’ (Iron Maiden) seen at Lockenhaus Castle. Though such devices are often  shown at castles they are supposed not had been used at all. Probably they were just show pieces inspired by another device called ‘Schandmantel’ (Spanish Coat).
