this painting depicts moments in the history of the tree on One Tree Hill. It was chainsawed and unsuccessfully cut down in a political protest. The strands of rope were tied to its branches in an attempt to save the ailing tree. It died and was removed. The painting depicts different aspects of the series of events layered, until the tree looks like a spirit of itself.
