This design comes from one of my photographs of the beautifully textured trunk of the Queensland Bottle Tree.

Shadows cast from the mid morning sun, created the lines and curves from the branches.

The Queensland bottle tree is an iconic tree as it is indigenous to Queensland. It grows virtually anywhere, from stony outcrops to rich alluvial soil. It definitely epitomises the saying “Grow where you are planted”

This design is made up of several slices of the original image resulting in this bold yet simple, abstract pattern.
