A DAILY PHOTOGRAPH FROM "THE VENICE OF AMERICA"
NOW ON SUMMER VACATION IN HARBOR SPRINGS, MICHIGAN
A futile attempt to straighten the tree....
The Tree Liberation Army.
A small plant delicate and fragile, needs support, to grow up and become a beautiful tree.So our life!Léia
Maybe that's the symbol of graft and the occupant is a politician?
Strange indeed. That rope looks like it's strangling the tree rather than supporting it.
i like brattcat's interpretation, that's funny!
Goodness, I just don't want to think anymore today. I'll let these others have the fun.
lol! love brattcat's interpretation too!!
tied together .. one holds the other up ..
It's the Hippocratic Oak symbol.
I think the tree is trying to be rebellious!
I hate the ropes. Even the symbolic ones. So it looks like somebody is begging for freedom.
I think the tree loves its stake. :)
A tree and a former tree roped together!
I echo Leia's comment.The frail creeper is able to grow after all, thanks to the much needed support it gets.
Doesn't Aesop have a fable about a tree falling in love with a rope? The relationship got tied up in the courts in the end.
Hi!I went on a Google quest and got your answer here... It's the "jewel" or symbol of the Canadian Orthopedic Association...Makes sense now!Fabulous find!!!
Ciel and others' comments made me laugh! :-)
I think the rope is being a little heavy handed--oh do ropes have hands? I'm leaving now! MB
Thanks all for marvelous interpretations of the mural! I am not sure I want the Canadian Orthopedic Association working on my bones!
I'd like to think that the tree is resisting the strangling grasp of conformity...but mending bent bones works too.
It seems to me that the tree is too old and so it needs a bit of support - just like an old person with a stick :)Have a great start to your week!Many thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come visit again tomorrow!
For a little twig to grow into a great big tree, as for a small human to grow into a large, healthy human, support is necessary.The nice thing about such a mural is that most any interpretation may contain some truth!
I think it belongs on a tarot card.
