Tree ring print made from real Osage Orange tree from Nauvoo, Illinois. Made by hand and signed by the artist, Erik Linton. 18x24 inches.
This print comes from a beautiful cut from an Osage Orange tree from the historical town of Nauvoo, Illinois. This tree cut is from a fallen tree that grew near the banks of the Mississippi river. Osage Orange is an extremely hard wood and was of particular interest to Meriwether Lewis and samples were sent back to Thomas Jefferson. Native Americans used the Osage orange to make bows and clubs and were said to travel hundreds of miles to get wood from the tree.
As an artist, my purpose is to reveal the artistry that exists in nature and to present it in a way that is accessible enough to hang on a wall in your home. I also want to bring our attention to our impact on the landscapes that surround us. These tree ring prints help us see our place in a much larger historical context and hopefully each ring makes us reflect on the limited time that we have in this beautiful landscape.
Each print is like a fingerprint from mother nature.
