Burlesque by Vindblain Burlesque by Vindblain
Named so for the bulbous belly button of burl that seems a ridiculous mockery of the solemn sentinels that stand silentious in the forest.
(And no, I'm not sure if "silentious" is used correctly, but I like the way the word sounds)

It's Burl. When a tree is threatened with disease and the like it will sometimes grow around the blight forming a knot of live tissue which continues to grow like a tumor. Sometimes it's fatal to trees (when it inhibits nutrient uptake and/or transfer, such as growth in the roots), sometimes it just plain looks cool.

Joyce M. Kilmer Memorial Forest in Tennessee. It's one of the few virgin forests remaining in the US. It's the same place I took Forgetting Well. [link]
