Here’s a pudgy preppy in a short haircut – or an old-fashioned collegiate beanie – dressed in bow-tie and tuxedo and whistling to the music Pan is playing on his pipes elsewhere on this tree. I love the immense detail and good sense of humor the nature artist shows in this figure.
He is an excellent example of the sophisticated technology of the nature beings, who craft in living wood by altering the cellular structure of the tree – no carving at all, such as humans would have done.
Other accessory images in the tree include a rabbit, a spirit bird and a gnome – all enjoying Pan’s playing of the pipes. Pan, with his long hair and beard, resembles John Lennon in his later years.
