A simple pine tree stands alone as a monument to salvation. This tree holds the snow pack in place for me whilst I ski on upwards. It averts death through avalanche. For this reason this tree is a holy relic like a shrine, and a symbol of salvation.   

The work is very much in the tradition of Caspar David Friedrich's pendant to winter landscape.
