The Elements of Creationby Team Art-JL
This art spire honors the four elements of fire, earth, water and air. The ash tree trunk – as it is repurposed into art – is embodied with the transformational actions of nature. We are the stewards of nature. We must use our creative energy and collective wisdom to keep our lands healthy and support nature’s ability to grow, change, rebuild and transform.
