Dripping Metal Energy

I have created a 10-foot tall tree that represents hereditary connective tissue disorders. With 21 of these sculptures (All handmade without any tools except for pliers.) I will hang my sculpturs from the tree representing different syndromes and diseases that are caused by the Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) mutations. The sculptures are all made out of metal and beads for jewelry. Everything is very lightweight except for the beautiful blue ceramic pot that the tree sits in with rocks (No soil.). The tree is wrapped in beads that represent the rainbow and fatigue. I also wrapped the tree in copper wire to represent connective tissue.
