The inspiration for this wire sculpture piece, hand crafted by Northern Irish artist Joy Gray, is nuture and protection. Joy layers wire to create this stunning realistic tree with a delicate birds nest perched on top. This moving piece stirs up questions of protection: where is the protection? Is it the fence and barbed wire? Is it the nest? Or is it the tree itself? The tree has been fenced in to protect it but the tree itself offers the real protection.
This exquisite and unique sculpture is a wonderful conversation starter with any guest particularly when displayed in a sitting room, lounge or hallway.
