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]

    I really like this. I wonder if he measured and plotted out where they would go or just kept adjusting till it worked.

    also would be very curious if it works well from other angles.
