The sculpture is my version of the beginning of life. The two walnut trees I found in the Texas hill country had be dead for some time. In the Texas hill country the middle of most trees rot out first but I had found one tree just before it got really punky.The spalting had already occoured and became a glorious design element adding to the mystic of the piece. The bottom root base is turned upside down for the emerging splashing effect.
