Dead Tree Gives Joy
A tree died in public land adjoining our church, so our local artist John who also attends to the land has carved the dead tree into a remarkable work of art for all to enjoy giving life to death. I think this is super! and would love to see it decorated by local children with fairy lights at Christmas time! A great gift to the community indeed.
Here are some pictures of it, I think you will agree it is very good. The lines and curves remind me of early Christian Celtic art when the tree is lit by the sunlight it glows with a warm golden colour and is certainly enhances the approach to the church.
Sadly one or two locals consider it pagan and demand it be removed and have even removed images of it from the Social Media Facebook page so denying others to make a judgement….so if you want to see it get down to Chaffcombe soon. What do you think?
