As told by my massage therapist:
“Recently the house on the corner was bought and sold and one of the first things the new owner did was cut down a beautiful fig tree that had been an iconic feature of the neighborhood. Many of the neighbors were quite sad to see it go. The new owner had a wood carver come in to transform it into a bear or a dog – but the carver refused to do it. He said that the tree had a different form that it wanted to take on – and so he carefully transformed the stump into this creature”.
