What an Awesome project and I Think the tree is a Boab, which they make Tooth picks out of!
I have seen this pic before, thanks for finding it Jock! You could truly get Lost in that tree.

Ive been there a few times. 20 different artists carved over 320 different animals.
Here is a picture from my honeymoon last year.


The chimp is Jane Goodall's favorite, David Graybeard. That is what that little plaque in the picture is for.



It costs about 50 bucks to see it up close. But there is a mountain worth seeing nearby.

That's the Tree of Life. Its the centerpiece for Disney's Animal Kingdom in Orlando. They actually used oil derricks for the framework. It is amazing!! As you walk around it you continually see animal after animal built into the trees surface. Sorry not a real tree and not carved sculpted. There is alot of info on how they made it - just search.
