Salix Alba Org 

The White Willow (Salix Alba) is a fast growing tree which can very easily be planted by pushing a twig of any thickness into the earth before the summer has not started too long ago. Enough moisture is very essential - especially during the first months. The Finnish-Dutch sculptor Lucien den Arend has be using live willows as a material to make his living sculptures professionally since 1972. As an eight year old boy, playing in the wetlands of Holland, he built huts in the same fashion. Sculptures of willows (Salix Alba) will be the focal point of Salix Alba Org - in particular the willow projects by the sculptor. By clicking on the image below of the Pieter Janszoon Saenredam Project, you will enter the sculpture site of the artist.
