Wood Pile Art: When Chopping Logs Isn't Challenging Enough Anyone who has ever meticulously stacked a wood pile knows that there's an art to stacking logs, but can a wood pile itself be a work of art? You betcha. Hungarian artist Gyula Várnai created this wonderful installation that depicts a man crouching down made entirely out of logs.
Gyula Várnai's Hungarian Contemporary art exhibit in 2008, utilizes very basic, raw wood to form this massive structure with a visual surprise. The pile spans the width of a room, about 33 feet wide, and stands almost 15 feet high.

Viewers must distance themselves from the piece in order to see the human figure come alive on the surface of the wood." Caption from link
