Patrick Dougherty’s Mind Blowing Nest Houses Made Of Living Trees

1

No, this isn’t the work of some gigantic bird. The living art you see before you was actually done by man – more specifically, artist and branchbender extraordinaire Patrick Dougherty. Crafting human-sized nest houses made by actually weaving growing trees into the shapes of houses, cocoons, pagodas, huts, giant water pitchers and even people, Dougherty has traveled the world with his truly extraordinary sculptures.

“A good sculpture is something that causes people to have personal associations,” Dougherty said in a recent interview. “It sparks all kinds of feelings about things in your own life.”
