How would you like to have something like this dominating your front yard?
A major design magazine recently featured this dead white tree as “animating” art for the front yard of a formal home. But I’m not sure what, exactly, they see that could possibly be uplifting or positive.
The tree sculpture interferes with both the view of the front of the house, and the view from the house to the beautiful greenery beyond.
From a Feng Shui perspective this white tree art is a particularly inauspicious image.
The tree, representing the Wood element, is symbolically being severed by the white color of the Metal element, an image of manipulation and control that would never be ideal as the dominant piece of art in front of a home.

Sadly, some of the most prominent design magazines in the world appear completely oblivious to how it would actually feel to be confronted with imagery like this every day.
Attract the most positive Chi energy to your front yard with energizing images like living plants and objects you truly love to look at.
