Photo Story: Ola Cohn’s Fairies Tree

FairiesTree01

Photo Name: Ola Cohn’s Fairies Tree

When: September, 2008

Where: Fitzroy Gardens, Melbourne, Australia

Story behind:

It is a close up photo of fairies tree, a famous work of an Australian artist named Ola Cohn. The tree attracted people (at least me) with the lovely carvings of fairies, dwarfs, gnomes, and other animals on the tree trunk.

Who does not love fairy tale? Seeing fairy characters on the tree, I did feel I was in a fairy tale. The tree looked amazed from the distance, and it looked elaborate when looking closer. From Fritzroy Gardens website, it took Ola Cohn three years to work on this. For me, three years is not a short period of time; I am so grateful for her work and effort. You brought out the child in me!
