'Wood Wave' rides to botanic garden


A 10-ton extended fork lift hoists the 4-ton sculpture called "Wood Wave" across a backyard in Shoreline as the artist, Bruce Johnson from California, keeps it from swinging as Gary Amundson steers. The piece is headed toward Shoreline's Kruckeberg Botanic Garden to be admired and used by children for climbing. Made from the roots of a redwood tree and pieces of copper, it was donated to the garden by Bruce and Joann Amundson. "Wood Wave" is the largest donation of art in the history of Shoreline, both in terms of size and value ($50,000).
