Bear emerges from log

Randy “The Wizard” Rupert worked his magic on a log at the Cook Forest Center for the Arts annual chainsaw carving show Sept. 13. From the log emerged a bear. Rupert has his main shop in Punxsutawney, but also has a studio and small shop in Limestone he calls “camp.” Rupert said he has been carving logs for about 20 years, but also has 20 years of experience carving ice as his previous occupation was an executive chef. The show at the center ran from Sept. 12 through the 14th.
