‘Huon’ The Tawny Mouth, 2020
Huon Pine, stainless steel, lime
135 x 125 x 56cm
A Huon Pine tree branch has been carved into the shape of a Tawny Frogmouth and mounted on a stainless steel base. What looks like white filler is limestone, which was drawn up into the tree as it grew replacing the sap. Extremely unusual as not all Huon Pine trees grow in limestone enriched soil.
