"Girl on Swing," wall-hanging.

The background wood is from a huge white oak that fell in my customers' back yard. Their daughters used to swing from one of the lower branches.

Wall-hanging of the Tree of Life, 28 inches in diameter. Walnut background with multiple species of wood for the image.

I have done a number of these plaques. This one is the largest. The Tree of Life occurs in the Bible, most notably in the Book of Revelations. It occurs in other religions as well. The "rule" for Tree-of-Life images is that the tree must have fruit and the roots must be at least partly visible.


Prices for these plaques range from $595 (12" x 12") to $1600 (for one this large)
