Brothers Jordan, left, and Jarrett Dahl have been carving a niche in the art world with their chainsaw works. They spend the summers creating their works together in Keystone, S.D. The two grew up on a farm near Dawson, and return there to work, as well. Jordan also farms while Jarrett devotes himself full time to the art. He will be carving this winter in Palm Springs, Calif.
