This is my carving into a tree, for the site specific project last week.
This is an image I drew of a church, it symbolises the history of the park where the tree sits. The All Saints park at uni used to be a graveyard, along with a church, so that's why I chose to carve a small church into the tree...I wanted it to be simple, because I don't think it needs too much detail to make the point.
I didn't research into tree carving, I just thought I'd go along and experiment. Apparently you're not allowed to touch any tree's that don't belong on your own land, so I think it's against the law. I don't like vandalism, and I don't class this as vandalism, it's art, and the tree will heal eventually so no harm done.
