533 Bamboo & Fern Panels

Vibrancy for any space and 2-sided to give a look like no other. Bamboo on one side, fern and fiddleheads on the other. The supporting top and bottoms panels were once a scarf I like so much, I framed. It reminded me of the Ents in the Hobbit book. I'm just a happy tree hugger.

Ents are a race of beings in J. R. R. Tolkien's fantasy world (with the Hobbits) of Middle-earth who closely resemble trees. They are similar to the talking trees in folklore around the world. Their name is derived from the Anglo-Saxon word for giant. The Ents appear in The Lord of the Rings as ancient shepherds of the forest and allies of the free peoples of Middle-earth during the War of the Ring. The Ent who figures most prominently in the book is Treebeard, who claims to be the oldest creature in Middle-earth.
