Strong Roots

A tree stump with mushrooms, flowers and grasses growing out of the top, and 'strong communities are the roots of resilience' written across the front. A butterfly hovers above, and there are markings behind and around the stump. The print is carved and has rugged lines with burnt orange ink.
New life springs forth from a cut tree trunk, or nurse log. Print by Simone Adler.
