Abstracted tree branch, looped and corkscrewing to earth

Artist: Rand, Keith John, RSA · 1956-2013

A drawing of a forest clearing of ghostly, misty suggestions of trees at left and centre, and with a prominent tree trunk at right from which a slightly bent branch extends from its left side, curls into an almost complete circle then corkscrews down into the earth.

This may be a natural phenomenon observed by Rand but is more likely an idea for a sculpture whereby he would attach the loop and corkscrew elements to an extant tree trunk and branch.
