This gorgeous tree by Clive Maddison is inspired by a Taiwan Cypress. It is a unique handmade item with 240 metres of aluminium wire and its canopy of leaves has approximately 10,600 loops. Each strand runs from the roots through to the leaves and has no other additional wiring, glue, solder, or any other means of securing them. The sculpture is self supporting through the twisting method used which holds it together.
The tree is mounted on a solid base of Amayaque with the roots on display which are as much a part of the trees as the canopy of leaves and trunk.
