Weeping Cedar Woman is an iconic statue representing an important period in the history of Clayoquot Sound. Godfrey Stephens created her in 1984 in response to the proposed logging of Meares Island. She's 21ft tall and carved from a 300 year old cedar tree #weepingcedarwoman #godfreystephens #mearesisland #tofino #vancouverisland #ohcanada #britishcolumbia #firstnations #motherearth #pacificrim #cedar #art #firstnationsart

If you catch Godfrey at a coffee shop, likely he has his sketchbook with him and is drawing a portrait of a friend or passerby. Here is Michel Antoine from the Cook St Village Mona Coffee House.
