Scottish sculptor Rob Mulholland has created this art installation at the David Marshall Lodge in Scotland titled Vestige.

June 10 full length by GungFace ...an enormous 15 metre tall baobab tree sculpture in Southbank, as part of the Festival of the World exhibition. Each ring is made by people and material from around the globe. I read up a little on its history - the baobab tree is the oldest living specimen in Africa, a symbol for meditation and community.

Cornelia Konrads is the artist behind these magnificent gravity defying land art installations. She creates sculptures that blend in with nature and revolve around the illusion of weightlessness, in which objects appear to be floating in mid air.
