Tree branch in a jar…well, a bunch of jars

This work, titled Ubiquitous, is by New York artist Naoko Ito. It consists of a forked tree branch, almost 6′ across, which has been carefully dissected into many pieces, each of which is carefully positioned in a glass jar. These jars, stacked together with empties, are then carefully assembled to recreate the natural form of the branch. [via Neatorama]
