Newel post

This one is real - not Photoshopped - as explained by the craftsman's son in a discussion thread at Reddit.   It was featured in a JLC magazine article in 2005; the post is hand-carved from mahogany and modeled after a tropical strangler fig tree.  Carving and installing the handrail required 800 man-hours.
