Van Gogh's Olive trees in dry stone by Richard Clegg.

Richard and his son Lewyn built the wall in a private garden near Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, England of 'Last of the Summer Wine' fame. The client set the challenge that we should build a tree in the style of Van Gogh's Olive trees. This is an intuitive interpretation. The work which was a small part of a much larger project cost £5,000. Pictured below Richard and Lewyn stand in front of a similar design built using granite and slate. The dry stone tree is built in the Tatra mountains, part of the Carpathian mountain chain between Slovakia and Poland.
