16" x 12" Cherry & Sycamore, Survivor Series.
This is the second piece of my survivor series, which is a series honoring the trees that survive man, hurricanes, fire, draught, flood, and disease. Each of the pieces is a representation of the complete life cycle of a tree. Symbolized within this piece are the roots that anchor as well as bring life, the trunk that holds strength together with stability, the canopy of foliage that not only receives but gives life to others, as well as the decomposers which gain life from its death. What makes the survivor series unique is the twisted spiral trunk that represents the struggles of the trees straining against these epic forces to survive
