One day I told my husband that we could just yank out the dead tree in our backyard with a chain and a truck. He didn’t believe me, I said push on it! Within 15 seconds the tree fell over! I took the trunk, where the branches split and cut it in half. The two halves used to be, a whole heart of the tree. The halves reminded me of couples that are so attached in life that death is only a temporary separation.
Made of reclaimed wood, Plexiglas, steel, and wax.
