This sculpture is made from the contorted stump of a forest tree.
It's been carved and polished to a high sheen.
What's intriguing about the method of this sculptor is that the branches and other areas are carved not just externally but are also hollowed out internally.
Wooden pebbles are shaped to look like a pebble bed nestled at the base.
This lateral root is carved with a braiding intricate design.
A view from the front.
More intricate carving and hollowing out.
