Originally from North Carolina, Carroll Barnes (1906-1997) made his home in Three Rivers, California. Barnes studied at Washington DC's Corcoran School of Art, and with Carl Milles in the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan 'Barnes embarked on a 16 ½-foot-tall version of Paul Bunyan, a project which, interrupted by service in the Army, preoccupied him for seven years. Carved from a 2,000-year-old Sequoia tree, (over the actual time of 18 months) the mammoth statue gained distinction as the world’s largest wood carving and earned Barnes a legendary status among sculptors.'
