SENTINELS OF THE LOST PINES

11’  x 12′ x 11′, burnt pine wood, 2012, by Shakti Sarkin and Emily Scano

Just three weeks after the fires of 2011, while collecting this charred wood from the Bastrop area, we saw lizards crawling around blackened rocks where all else was ash. Amidst the devastation, small plants clung to life, and people from all over the country came to help others rebuild their homes.These pine totems serve as memorials for the lives that were lost – trees, people, wildlife and pets. When the wind blows, they wave; their spirit is alive. The loblolly saplings in the center represent growing hope and the joy of new life, reminding us that we are the keepers, the sentinels, of the verdant life around us.
