Artist's Description

What strange phenomena we find in a great city, all we need do is stroll about with our eyes open. Life swarms with innocent monsters.
~Charles Baudelaire

Reminded me of a child wrestling with the monsters in his dreams.

This is one of many Redwood Driftwood pieces, remnants of the 1860-1930 logging era, shaped by natural forces.
In early years the trees were uprooted as they were logged from millennia old virgin forests.
When it was realized that new trees sprouted from left in the ground roots, the practice was discontinued.
Once plentiful along the beaches and rivers of Northern California, most of these water and insect resistant roots have been milled into beautifully colored lumber and furniture, and the beaches have been closed to further removal. This is one of a 35 year old collection of these spirited tree roots found along Clove Rd, Minnewaska, New York, USA
