House with trees

Hi friends,

In my home town, kerala, each house will be surrounded by trees. We believe that our ancestors will be with us in the form of trees. In South India, you can see atleast one coconut tree in each house.

In Indian mythology, the coconut tree was created by the powerful sage Vishwamitra to prop up King Trishanku who was attempting to gain entry into heaven as a mortal but was thrown out by the gods.

Here is my quilled house with two little coconut trees.

Materials used:

Green paper - 3M
Quilling strips - Itsy Bitsy
