A strange forest by luminatii A strange forest by luminatii
Roughly 7ft tall wood panel; branches (octopus branches and cherry, I think), acrylic paint, & paper cranes.

Meant to be seen in person, really. It's about the experience - about walking right up to it and being surrounded with the trees and cranes and everything, and hearing those little deer things speak to you. They're quietly saying sweet things.
Otherwise, it's really inexplicable.

:heart:

I'll probably upload more pictures to my Flickr later.

Kinda sorta.

I'm contemplating whether or not I want to show there - it's in a fantastic location, but it's very expensive and I don't know if I will have the money to put forth for it.

Was and still is one of my favorite pieces on deviantART. The creativity and beauty in your creation is just amazing. Not only can you just appreciate the paintings but the 3D effect with the cranes and branches :heart:

this is so beautiful and very intriguing, I just love how both the images and 3d branches seem to float upwards and out in a general direction of motion

i think my favorite areas are the ripple like effects around the areas where the base of the branches connect to the wood, almost as if they're passing through some portal and into our world <3

Overall, it's gorgeous and so dream like, I would love to be able to see this in person
