Bronze Sculpture Attached To A Tree In 1968, Here’s How It Looks Now



An Italian artist Giuseppe Penone installed a bronze sculpture of a hand onto a tree. This was done in 1968 at Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas.

The “Continuerà a crescere tranne che in quel punto” (“It Will Continue to Grow Except at this Point”) was made from a cast of the artist’s actual hand and lower arm.

I feel the forest breathing, and hear the slow, inexorable growth of the wood, Penone wrote in 1968. I match my breathing to that of the green world around me. The flow of the tree around my hand placed against the trunk. It’s hard to know what impact the metal will have on the tree in the long run. But the contrast between cold metal and organic wood looks mesmerizing.
