Artist Draws Attention To Illegal Land Development

Trees are one of the Earth’s most precious resources, providing us with everything from healthy soil and oxygen to building materials constructed out of a renewable resource, and yet there are those who don’t appreciate the sanctity of trees.

So how do you make those who would clear cut a forest for the sake of illegal land development realize they're killing a living resource?

Artist Yeka Haski decided to paint the stumps to look like shanks of meat, so the crooked developers would realize "murder without blood and cries is still a murder."

Some may find Yeka's guerilla art stunt to be a bit heavy handed, but it achieved Yeka's overall goal by bringing attention to the fact that land developers had illegally cut down hundreds of trees in the Kavgolovo Forest.
