This three dimensional asymmetrical sculpture has an elongated spire-which, in turn, sprouts small bronze tree from its tip. It appears to be growing organically out of the museum’s wall. The bronze tree has been treated with a patina, causing it to turn green. This piece commemorates the series of large-tooth aspen trees that have grown atop the Decatur County Courthouse.
Designers Jeff Laramore and David Jemerson Young of 2nd Globe, an Indianapolis–based artistic company designed all 92 and the county sculptures featured on the outside of the Indiana State Museum. Their designs narrate the counties’ famous natives, historically significant events, or their fabricated and installed by various Indiana sculptors, carvers, class workers, metal workers, and other artisans.
