This catalpa tree lives at Swarthmore College – a top-ranked institution known for its ultra-liberal ideas. The campus is also the Scott Arboretum and the honoring and valuing of nature takes equal precedence with intellectual explorations. The tree lives at the entrance to one of the living areas.
I love the wild-haired student seen here in its main burl – definitely unique and more interested in intellectual exploration than in cosmetic beauty! At the student’s feet rests a solid earth angel with powerful wings, protecting a small portal that will become the student’s entry to some very individual, but spirit protected, future.
