Hidden Treasures At Lau Lau Bay

I was back at one of my favorite places, Lau Lau Bay, for another meeting of the Lau Lau Bay Launching Project yesterday.
While waiting for everyone else to show up, a tree that had split in half caught my eye. As I went over to investigate the cause of the tree's demise, I first noticed that someone or some persons had burned the base of the tree tunk. I also noticed that the inside of the tree had rotted away. As I explored further, I discovered some of Lau Lau Bay's other hidden treasures -- this nice Tataga fish that someone had painstakenly carved into the tree...

... and this hook that was also carved into the tree. As much as I enjoyed the artwork, it's hard to appreciate it if carving them into the tree helped to kill the tree. I liken it to graffit -- the artwork can be breathtaking, but where it is applied may spoil the beauty.

I'm wondering who carved them. Was it long time ago or lately??...
It looks like someone took a long time to finish carving on the tree.
It's a little mystery...
