Wednesday Wonder: Memorial to Pete Seeger

Halloween has come and gone but the wonder is ever-present. In the time-lapse video below, which I shared last week on FaceBook, Shawn Feeney carves the likeness of the late Pete Seeger (May 3, 1919 - January 27, 2014) from a jack-o-lantern. In 2008, Feeney began creating the 3-D likeness of a musician who had died since the Halloween of the year before. To date, he has made likenesses of sitarist Ravi Shankar, rapper Adam "MCA" Yauch, songwriter Captain Beefheart, heavy medalist Dio, pop king Michael Jackson, and composer Karlheinz Stockhausen. All the memorial jack-o-lanterns are incredible! See his other work.
