Natural Sculpture

Posted by
Michael Skorulski (Toronto, Canada) on 27 February 2018 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

When I first saw this tree in a park in Brno, Czech Republic, I thought someone had been carving on it. Then I realized the shapes were natural.

Fabulous !!
When at night , the whole world sleeps..
Out come these dwarfs and fairies with their little knives and chisels
And at the first display of the rays of sunlight
They all vanish :))))
