Inspired by the song Plant-life by one of my all time favorite artists, Eligh of The living Legends. This was one of my favorite things I made in 2011 or ever. Thanks to Big Mike for his loyal support and these wonderful photos. One hundred and forty hours. The piece stands17 inches and at the base is around a hundred and fifty milometers in width. Thanx for looking!!
