Remember that incredibly awesome Edgar Allan Poe sculpture we shared a couple weeks ago? That was the work of artist Stefanie Rocknak, and so is this amazing sculpture, which she carved from a single piece of wood.
Entitled The Swimmer, the sculpture is slightly larger than life-size and depicts a swimmer turning their head to take a breath during the crawl stroke. The sense of movement, both by the athlete and the water, is so palpable that we keep waiting for the swimmer to turn their face back into the water, complete the stroke and swim right out of the photos.
