275 9/16 x 8 1/4 in. (700 x 21 cm)
The tree, a living organism, in appearance so closely resembling the human figure, is a central element in Penone’s work, especially when he transforms actual trees into sculpture or casts them in bronze. Imprint techniques are significant as evidenced in this soaring life-size scroll in the medium of frottage on paper (created by rubbing charcoal pencil over the tree trunk and cross-section); mounted on canvas, suspended on a wood roll. Each frottage is hand-made, thus unique.
Signed and numbered AP from the edition of 30.

104 pages, Sperone Editore, Turin, 1971. Penone mapped his entire body with hundreds of photos taken when pressing a sheet of glass against different parts of his body, assembling assembling the resulting images into grids. In these photographs the subject is seen “unrolling one's skin against air, water, earth, rock, walls, trees, dogs, handrails, windows, roads, hair, hats, handles, wings, doors, seats, stairs, clothes, books, eyes, sheep, mushrooms, grass, skin...” wrote the artist, reflecting on the quantity of voluntary and involuntary signs that bodies disseminate and spread onto different things. Unspecified edition size.
