Mother Nature

I saw this photograph on Facebook, that modern font of all wisdom.


It is claimed to be a tree in Portugal, but it seemed to divide opinion. There were those pragmatic sorts who claimed it is fake. For fake read photoshopped. Then there were those who claimed it to be a natural phenomenon. Although some did permit the possibility of carving, citing the nipples as too perfectly placed. Plastic surgeons of the world take note.

The first group used words like ‘dumb’, and ‘gullible’. The last group used termsΒ like ‘wood nymphs’ and Β ‘magic of nature’.

There was also an equal divide about the overall effect of the image. Some described it as beautiful, others derided it as creepy.

Personally I love it, but which camp are you in?

    …minus the boobs, I like it. I like the idea of Earth being the Feminine that nurtures life. I like the reaching up to the sky in a posture of praise and wonderment. πŸ™‚


  2. If it’s fake, it’s an amazing work of art. If it’s real (which, I know, it isn’t) then it’s an even more amazing work of art. Either way, it’s an amazing work of art! Win-win!
