Wood has long been used as an artistic medium. It has been used to make sculptures and carvings for centuries. Examples include the totem poles carved by North American indigenous people from conifer trunks, often Western Red Cedar (Thuja plicata), and the Millenium clock tower , now housed in the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.
It is also used in woodcut printmaking, and for engraving.
