Tree of Life - new sculpture by Andee Harston


This tree of life sculpture was a vision that haunted me for years. It embodies the idea of a darkness versus light ideal. The tree itself has a very earthy and dark feel, but the center has an amethyst druzy and each of the hands holds the secret to life, as contained in the nautilus shell (a reoccurring theme in my jewelry and artwork)This piece measures approx 19 inches tall, the amethyst is 2 inches tall, the base at the roots is about 7 inches wide. (more measurements to come soon)It is made from an armature, two types of clay, various paints and a protective finish. It has cracks and an aged look, just like you would imagine an ancient tree would have. Each hand is painstakingly sculpted. No molds were used. Recycled Styrofoam and wire was used for the armature. Please contact me for more info regarding this piece. Currently, I have this for sale in the USA only. International shipping isnt out of the question, but would cost considerably more. I am open to local pickup options.This piece is fragile and would be shipped INSURED at cost to the buyer. Andee
