The attraction of the tree is universal and timeless; trees represent mystery, protection and worship. From the trees of good and evil in medieval manuscripts to the 19th century symbolist vision, trees have always intrigued and fascinated mankind. Contemporary artists, too, continue to be very fond of this element of nature, trying to capture its essence.
