Hanging Tree (Post 9)

Andy Goldsworthy created this piece called Hanging Tree as part of a series for a park. There were three pieces in total, all made from felled trees in the park. This particular tree is called the hanging tree because it is embedded into the stone wall around it and suspended above ground. The finished product almost gives the illusion of looking through a window. On the other hand, to me it almost seemed to represent the death of nature. The fact that the tree is in the ground and in a rectangular shape seems to suggest death.
