Dark Forest 2008

Since time immemorial the forest and trees have had deep meaning for humanity. Myths, stories, and fairytales have had the forest as a setting for the many challenges that humans face. Forests were places to be feared, to grow, and to retreat for healing and spiritual practice. The trees within are life forms that we have depended since on our beginnings for all the gifts that wood gives to the oxygen essential for life on this planet. Trees also have rich symbolic content from their roots going deep into the earth, to their limbs striving for the heavens.
