Monumental Mounted Tree Trunk Sculpture

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A monumental, mounted, tree trunk sculpture. An awesome, towering, organic pillar mounted to a welded steel base. A dynamic Silhouette and an incredible, textured and gnarled, monochromatic surface; a fissure running down the upper shaft opening to a wide, expressive aperture at the centre. Great from all angles, the piece is open at the back, revealing an altogether different inner world. Wonderful and unexpected scale and proportion, an impressive example of American organic sculpture.


As a possible option, sculpture is displayed on our showroom on a remarkable travertine pedestal (pictured), sold separately for $2800.
