The soul is delicately exposed on the ridge tips of the rings in gold leaf and along the way small tear drops of blood from the felling, lead the eye to the intricacy of the design and ultimately the open centre the glimmer and glint of what was a magnificent tree in majesty and glory once upon a time. now hinted at the soul though is still there. This timeless piece captures the heart enhancing life displayed on its side or flat which opens a whole new visual experience to enjoy.
