WPC – Representational Abstractism

Stretching our mind’s eye

There’s nothing more likely to find representational concepts in abstract form than the human mind.  The Yoga Tree is a fine example of this!

A Proper Asana

Yes, in essence, she is a mere tree, whose form has been shaped by years of growth in a climate and environment, for which the current shape was an optimal adaptation.  Being on a farm, she had to deal with growing around a discarded oil tank, which almost certainly contributed to the curvature.

To our human mind, she presents an intriguing shape that we look to interpret; as she presents this shape, we see arms stretching to the sky in a pose that might remind us of a yoga asana: the Yoga Tree is born!

During the Summer, when she is ensconced in a fine set of foliage, there are other shapes to discover.  I’ll be sure to touch upon these in a future post!

My question to you: what did you see first time you laid eyes on this tree?
