Mastodon’s Brent Hinds Carved A Giant Wooden Mastodong

When Brent Hinds isn’t fronting Mastodon, he likes to blow off steam by doing some wood carving. Over the past year, he’s been busy with recording his band’s new album Once More ‘Round The Sun, so for his first carving in almost a year, he channeled all his pent-up wood carving energy into making … well, a giant woodie. His wooden phallus is extraordinarily detailed, complete with veins — he called it his “giant pawnus” when he uploaded pics of the sculpture to his Instagram. Exclaim came up with the perfect name for Hinds’ creation: the Mastodong. Check out a photo of the phallus in its infancy stage (oof) below.

UPDATE: Here’s some video of him finishing it off.
