    Strings of ornate beads transform ordinary tree trunks into shimmering, pseudo-fantastic sculptures. Upon closer examination, these decorative beads are revealed to be typical hardware -- nuts and washers --  mixed in with natural seeds, all painted to look more rare and precious. This sculpture embellishes the Park's natural setting while commenting, through contrast, on the relationship between the mechanical, decorative, and natural.
