Rumen Dimitrov

 
                                        
                                        International artist in town
 
Rumen Dimitrov, from Bulgaria, flew over to Ellesmere in July to start the 2011 phase of the Sculpture Trail in Cremorne Gardens.
A beech stump had been selected for him to work on and he took just five days to complete the work, totally worked with a chainsaw.
He called the piece 'Stairway to Haven' after his favourite band Led Zeppalin's song Stairway to Heaven.The inside of the tree does indeed provide a haven where one can see the Mere clearly from this new vantage point.
Steps were cut out of the roots on the Mere side of the tree and the piece removed from the rectangular hole in the tree was used to form the stairs at the back.
