The Skull Taking Tree

Kalin Thompson from Brisbane, Australia created this acrylic on wood piece, titled "The Taking Tree". Kalin says, "It's kind of a spoof of Shel Silverstein's "The Giving Tree". The hotness is in the details."

This is definitely a place I would want to hang out in. However, the humor is definitely in the details. The sign on the house says "No Grownups Allowed", so I guess I will just have to be satisfied with the farm house or hot air balloon. The "I'm with stupid" shirt made me smile. The other shirt says "Ou est le boeuf?", which translates to "Where is the beef?". If you remember that old Burger King commercial, then you understand the humor. I like the Chinese dragon laying on a branch, like a griffin, to protect the "castle". The boxer flag is a good way to stake your territory and air out your laundry. I used to have a tree house, but nothing as fancy as this.

I would make my skull tree house up in the mountains, by a lake. I would love to wake up early each morning and see the sun shining on the water with a thin layer of fog on it. Many ghostly possibilites there.

Love everything about this -- from the boxers flag, to the baby crows, to the stovepipe trailing smoke! Gorgeous Skull House!

I would make my skull tree house on the sunny side of a mountain that overlooked other mountains so I would have a great view every morning I woke up.

i would have my tree-house in the city between two hi-rise buildings, perhaps with a bar in it.
