From the Hive - Tree Guardian
Size: 4.5 X 5 inches
Medium: Encaustic paint and mixed media on wood cut out
Tree Guardian is an elm tree that graces a highway near my home, it's branches arching over the road in an act of protection and welcome. I recently heard a story about a woman who saved the tree from being cut down by standing quietly next to it refusing to move until the road workers left.
It reminds us of our loving reciprocal relationship with trees. We are each other's guardians.
This ornament is hand painted with encaustic paint, a mixture of beeswax, damar resin and pigment. It comes with a hemp cord and is packaged in a compostable clear bag with an info card about encaustic paint and care instructions.
