Botanical Art

The other day we were walking along the Botanical Gardens of Singapore, when I came across these sculptures made out of stumps of tree trunks; and I thought they were quite groovy.

How exquisite. And creative. Makes you wish all those ugly stumps around could carved , if not so beautifully then at least with something simple.
