Tree of Life 3
Based on John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.", I see the tree as representation of the cross that Jesus was nailed to as payment for our sins. In his death our sins are paid for and through his resurrection we have eternal life, thus the cross is ultimately "The Tree of Life".
This is the third installment of my tree of life series. It has been created inside the box from an antique cabbage shredder. The images in the back are from an 1880s geography text book and a 1930s edition of Grays Anatomy. The tree has been crafted from rebar wire and is adorned with a bit of antique rosary. It has been secured to the box with antique nails salvaged from an old box camera.
