Andrea Gandini, a 22-year-old Roman sculptor, is making a growing name for himself by turning the Eternal City's tree stumps into much-admired pieces of art. Gandini, who began his tree carvings around five years ago, chipped away at his 66th stump in the huge Villa Pamphili park Friday."That is how I chose to start carving stumps in Rome".He said he liked to meet people while working and had no personal claim to the faces, animals and other artwork carved out the stumps.Gandini maps the stumps on his website, and the sculptures are becoming a tourist attraction.
