HEART OF THE ALPS - Acrylic Desk Block

Kosciuszko National Park, New South Wales, Australia

Looking more like a heart with arteries flowing from it than a tree, this snow gum immediately got my attention. I had been camped out in Kosciuszko National Park with my wife and this morning had been nothing but consistent rain. The resultant wet bark on this tree really brought out the colours on this quintessential Australian alpine tree.

Snow gums (Eucalyptus pauciflora) dominate subalpine woodlands mountains of the southeastern Australian mainland at the altitudinal limit to tree growth. Forests and woodlands of Snow Gums can look quite uniform from a distance, but up close they have such character. These examples in the Kosciuszko National Park epitomise the unique beauty in many of the older snow gums that have survived bushfires devastating large swathes of snow gum habitat in recent years.

ACRYLIC DESK BLOCKS.

Our acrylic desk blocks give the photo a three dimensional look. They are perfect for desks, bookshelves, mantlepieces, bed side tables - any horizontal surface.

The photo is printed on professional grade metallic photographic paper, using archival inks. It is then mounted on the back of an acrylic (plexiglass) block. It is finished with diamond polishing, buffing and final hand polish.

They are free standing, so no hanging system is required. These are a very popular option for gifts, farewell presents or if you need a small lightweight option to travel with. Acrylic desk blocks come in a box ready to gift.
