How amazing and powerful is this image? This photo was taken in Brisbane, near the Modern Art Gallery. The tree is growing on the river bank, and it seems hold a powerful protector- guardian. I wonder if others have noticed this creature, or have other examples.
What comes to mind is The Minotaur, Cerebus, and more recently some of the Jim Henson creatures. My mantra has always been “Look to Nature for inspiration”.
So speaking of trees there is another tree that has given me exquisite delight. A tree crocheted by Kya of Clutch Creations for the Southern Christmas Swap. I received it just before leaving to go to family down south and have been ill since with a chest infection. Not the ideal way to celebrate Christmas. That bug has certainly felled me. In a day or to I shall post an image of this lovely little tree .
My other swap was a handmade book,which had a handpainted cover. I was thrilled to think that the family had taken time and all contributed to this special gift.
Heartfelt thanks to Kya and Anita.
