Artist's Description

Hamadryads are forest nymphs who are so linked to their trees that if the trees were destroyed, these forest spirits would themselves cease to exist. In Greek mythology, the gods and dryads punished mortals who harmed trees without first propitiating these spirits. It’s a long way from the “slash and burn” approach that many modern cultures now take to clearing forest and woodlands in the name of profit and progress.
