Amazing Butterfly Bench Design

How about this beautiful bench? Amazing is that this great bank was carved on a 600-year-old felled oak tree. As a huge history fan I find it completely mesmerising and extraordinary that this tree has seen such a lot in its lifetime.  Grown from an acorn planted in the reign of King Henry IV or V (how amazing!). It had fallen from its site on the edges of a lake at Bletchley Park, Bletchley (UK). The tree trunk reached on the hands of a local artist Arthur Mowbray who carved this beautiful piece of art.

    This bench is beautiful! Are there more of these? How much does one cost? A friend of mine lost a daughter to Cerebral Palsy last year. The little girl loved butterflies! Her family and friends are raising money to build and maintain a Butterfly Park – fully accessible to special needs children…without government assistance! – in her memory. In a year’s time they have acquired land, butterfly friendlymbushes and flowers, and some equipment for Kayla’s park. A bench like this would be perfect in it! I would love to buy one to donate to this great cause. Please advise of availability and cost in America. Thank you!
