Art of nature: olive trees sculptures.

By paolafalconi   /     Oct 26, 2014  /     Inspiring moments

Today I’ve been in the countryside of ¬†Villamassargia in a place called “S’Ortu Mannu”. Here you can find hundreds of secular olive trees that are 6 or 7 hundreds years old having been implanted between 1.300 B.C. and 1.600 B.C.

It’s a magical place where I have had the opportunity to admire ¬†for another time the greatest artist of all: Mother Nature.

This olive tree is called “Sa Rejna – The Queen” and, according to some experts, it’s considered the biggest olive tree of all the Mediterranean see. I don’t know if it’s really true but for sure this tree is majestic. It’s 16 mt. diameter and at least 10 mt tall. But what is more interesting is that it’s really a living sculpture standing there for at least 7 hundreds year.

Looking for autumn colors

One of the moments I prefer during the day is when I walk around my house with my dog Jack. Anytime of the day or night.

Yesterday there was stormy weather with strong wind that cleared the sky perfectly. The final result today was an incredible shiny light that amplified all the color of the nature.

I’ve taken my camera/phone and I’ve started to take a lot of pictures trying to find vivid colors that will inspire me during my winter working days.
