pollarded willows and geometry

LAND ART between Maasdam and Westmaas, Holland - pollarded willows and ultramarine tempera.
"dance macabre" - Ritselaarsdijk near Zwanegat, Binnenmaas, Holland - pollarded willows and ultramarine tempera paint.

An old row of pollarded willows attracted my attention when the members of the Dordrecht Section of the Dutch Sculptors' Association organized an environmental-art symposium/exhibition along an old remaining segment of the Roman Medieval Meuse (now Binnenbedijktemaas); it is now a meandering lake.

This row of willows is located along a drainage ditch between the coordinates 51°47'13.9"N 4°30'42.1"E and 51°47'14.4"N 4°30'48.0"E. Eventually, because of the regular pollarding, they become hollow and will eventually split and fall apart. Actually they are dying most of their life. They last half a century on average.
