This tree spirit has a psychic traffic light system at work. His left eye show the classic 3-hole design for cautioning people to stop, pause or go. He is energetically protecting the entrance to the one-lane covered bridge behind him. He faces a country road that has a descending blind curve that could encourage strangers to go too fast in a dangerous situation.
He guards Smith’s Bridge, originally built in 1839 and restructured several times since. It is one of only three historic covered bridges still in Delaware. This one-lane bridge spans the Brandywine Creek, which meanders through many historic sites in Pennsylvania and Delaware
