World Tree is a land art installation created by Budapest-based artist Krisztián Balogh. Carved by hand into the peat of a Hungarian bog in 2012, the ephemeral art piece resembled a network of a tree’s roots or branches that spanned a diameter of 32 feet. The sheer precision of the etching and the incredible attention to detail has led much of the internet to believe that the creation must be a digital rendering, but it was as real as can be. Balogh, who has done several land art installations and sculptures, enjoys looking to nature for his creative inspiration.
