Alaskan Art

What do Alaskans do when their Sitka Spruce trees get these large burls (caused by fungi, bacteria, or a genetic mutation) on them?  They make them into porch posts.  We saw several of these.  
I'm not sure if this was for real or not, but I doubt it. 

And these would officially be dubbed as "airport art".  Above is a tile mosaic with plates included as part of the clouds, and below is a flag made entirely from aluminum cans.  Both of these I discovered in ladies' restrooms.   It made me wonder what kind of art they had put in the men's restrooms.
