Forest Book Kauri Page

Enter more to the inside of my Forest Book with a page based on the Tane Mahuta, New Zealands largest known living Kauri tree.  This tree is in the Waipoua Forest on the north island.  This forest is magnificent and the print this page is based on is but a tiny section of this immence tree that is upwards of 1200  years old.

The image is printed on these surfaces: lutradur, tyvek, rice paper and dyed canvas.  The layers also contain dyed burlap, chrocheted hemp, twigs and dyed cheesecloth. The stacks are wired together an attached to hardware cloth.  A large border of crocheted jute surrounds the tree composition.
