Orick: Bigfoot Burl Art Capitol of The World

We are not talking about a place of myth and legend like El Dorado, Brigadoon, or Shangri-La. Orick is a real place and it is officially the self-proclaimed burl art capitol of the world--and bigfoot is a big inspiration.

Wait, wait! Theres more! Apparently if you travel south from Orick, on HWY 101, all the way down to Eureka (about 50 miles.) you will see gallery of wooden Bigfoot carvings.

We would like to say we took pictures of each carving and documented where each one was, but we didn't. Fortunately, someone has. At the, they have photos and exact descriptions of the location of each Bigfoot. We will showcase a few favorites.

We highly recommend visiting the site below. Its amazing how different artist can interpret Bigfoot in so many different ways.

"Worst Movie" Book Devotes a Chapter to Bigfoot.

In an interview talks to Michael Adams, the author of bad movie book "Showgirls, Teen Wolves and Astro Zombies," One chapter of the book is dedicated to Sasquatch. Below is an excerpt from the interview discussing the Bigfoot chapter.

Just how obsessed with the Sasquatch are you? There's quite a hefty section dedicated to the hairy beast.

Man, you should've seen that chapter before it was edited down! There were pages of history about Bigfoot and interviews with Sasquatch hunters, one of whom told me he believed there were 200 such creatures living in the Pacific Northwest and they held Survivor-like tribal councils to given themselves! I watched another movie, too, The Capture of Bigfoot, that had to be edited out for space. Yes, for a few days there I went deeeeep into Bigfoot. But then I'd move on to the next mini-obsession.

Who's committed the greater cinematic crimes: Bigfoot or Madonna?

Madonna, hands-down. What I'd love, though, would be for Madge to make a Bigfoot movie.
