The tree is seen as a sacred symbol, which carries significant meanings in both religious and spiritual philosophies. From above the surrounding sheep tracks combined with the fallen tree reminded me of the Tree of Life. While the aerial perspective focuses on the earth, you can see the pooled water in the sheep tracks reflecting the blue of the sky. While this represents many different things, for me it communicates the interconnection of all things, beginnings and endings, returning to the earth and the cycling of life.
