Young Tree Carved Inside Old Tree

Penone1

Amazing wood sculptures by Italian artist, Giuseppe Penone. In “The Hidden Life Within,” Penone carves a young tree inside an old tree to highlight the passage of time and the importance of living in the present. “Tree of 12 Metres” is similarly concerned with growth and drawing attention to natural processes that normally go unnoticed.
