Pirate Tree House

This model, built over the winter 2012-2013, began with part of a hedge I’d found some years earlier and the model of a pirate ship painted to resemble weathered wood, and became the island home of sailors stranded after a tsunami threw their ship into the arms of a great tree. I was particularly pleased with the flickering light inside the pirates’ tent home and their pulleys for bringing supplies up from the sandy beach below.
