Description from the Artist:

The Moreton Bay Fig Tree with its primeval above ground roots and encompassing twisting branches is the mother tree of Santa Barbara. It is reminiscent of elephant trunks and ancient times ruled by forests of sons and daughters, brother and sister monumental trees. To see it is to want to sit in its warm embrace and paint, share its power from its small, almost forgotten plot by the train station. Still the Mother Tree survives, endures, flourishes and nourishes.
