The "tree" for this piece existed as part of another artwork for years. I never really liked it and only recently had the inspiration to put it in it's current form. It feels like a commentary on man's destructiveness toward nature and toward ourselves, on the inevitable tie between civilization and the natural world, and finally, about nature's resilience.
