I've learned more since the previous two posts. Pueblo Montaño was the name of the fire. The sculptor is Mark Chavez, a chainsaw artist -- and a firefighter who worked on the fire itself.

Photo of the fire I mentioned in the previous post. I shot this from many miles away, in Albuquerque's foothills. Note how, in the lower right, you can actually see the glow of the flames. This fire was especially heartbreaking because a) it came right on the heels of another fire in the bosque and b) this one was set deliberately, by arsonists.
