Chainsaw carving

Meet artist Kenneth Nielsen, renowned for his exquisite wooden sculptures crafted with a chainsaw. One of his notable works is the large Lapland sign along the E45. You can admire his chainsaw art pieces here. A visit to his garden is well worth it, where you can marvel at numerous splendid sculptures he meticulously crafted by hand, without any other tools.

From his garden, you can also explore the “Bj√∂rn Stigen” trail, where you can search for hidden sculptures. Kenneth Nielsen is celebrated for his depictions of Lapland’s wildlife and also creates gnomes in various shapes and sizes. To get a better sense of his work, check out his YouTube page.
