The Tree of The Fates was inspired the ancient Mediterranean Cypress, Cupressus sempervirens. The Cypress was regarded by the ancient Greeks & Romans as the tree sacred to the rulers of the underworld & to their associates, the Fates & the Furies.
The Tree of Fates was submitted to the Calgary Stampede Western Art Auction in April. After being evaluated by a jury of art critics it was accepted into the show. The Tree of Fates will be on display for the preview evening dinner gala & auction ‘STIR UP’, July 7th, 2010.
