vincent kohler billon02 The Art and Utility of a Tree

In this sculpture by artist Vincent Kohler, an exploded view of a tree shows various cuts of lumber and what parts of a tree they’re from. You may be surprised to discover that the piece is not made of wood, but rather resin and polystyrene. It’s as beautiful as it is educational.
