Living tree sculpture aka arborscupture
Oh WOW! This is about the coolest stuff I have seen about gardening ever. This is something I'd just love to do if I had the land to do it on. Very, very cool. Check out the sites, please!!!
The last image is a Ficus House on Okinawa at this site: http://www.arborsmith.com There are many more very cool pictures there.
The other three images are from: http://www.pooktre.com
This is what their site says. They are from Australia.
In 1986 Peter had the idea of growing a chair. Nine years later Peter & Becky became partners. Pooktre was born. Together they have mastered the art they call Pooktre, which is the shaping of trees as they grow in predetermined designs. Some are intended for harvest to be high quality indoor furniture and others will remain living art.
