Burls are wonderful canvases for nature spirit artists! Currently, human scientists are not able to describe the full range of possibilities of origin and growth of burls, which are an integral part of a tree’s being. In nature spirit terms – a lot of these burls are the result of fashioning the tree’s living tissue into images that, like here, sometimes tell a story.
The burl has eyes and faces turned in three directions as it warily surveys all who pass by. This tree is inhabited by forest beasties – darker energy beings who are very happy in their own society. You can see that here, in the facial expressions.
A small being (top left of the product photo) is happily dressed in a fungi tutu – she reminds me of Princess Fiona, of the Disney Shrek movies…
This beech tree lives along a curve in Bennett’s Run creek, where it passes through Crosslands Community, Kennett Square, PA
