Emerging from Saguaro Boot

$ 185.00


Product Description

This hanging sculpture is 14 inches tall and 6 inches wide. The Paper mâché figure is emerging from a Saguaro boot.  The boot is formed when a bird burrows into the cactus and makes its nest there.  The cactus makes a protective coating on the 'wound' and when the cactus dies the softer parts decompose and the harder tissue, the boot, remains intact.

This is the first Cactus Boot sculpture we've had in the online store. The few Sarena has created were previously only sold at Art Fairs or for special orders.
