Oak is a very characteristic tree and it has been worshipped and holy in Europe for centuries; oak leaves are still regarded as Badges of Honour.

When I grew up my family lived in a house built on a slope of oaks and oak has always been a worshipped tree for me. Where I live today these trees are infrequently seen and when I find an acorn I love to put it in a tiny vase to see it grow. My acorn is a voice from the past to the present, growing in a transparent vase with a backing symbolizing timber.
