Young trees carved within old trees

Italian artist Giuseppe Penone is a sculptor who carves young trees within the trunks of old trees. His work shows the past and present of nature, and his detailed sculptures give the viewer a glimpse into the beauty of the growth of trees. Penone’s exhibit, The Hidden Life Within, was recently displayed at the Art Gallery of Ontario.
