Unholy tree


Perhaps I'm behind the times and this is something that is done a lot, but when I saw this Christmas tree, assembled bottom up, in a florist shop, it shocked me. I called it an "unholy" tree because it felt like seeing a crucifix upside down (I'm not Catholic, but the intention behind flipping the crucifix is what bothers me).  I'm probably weird or overly sensitive, but the avant-gardism did not tickle me in anyway; rather it made me uncomfortable.  Heebie-jeebie city.




S
eeing the amount of space in the florist shop, putting the tree upside down may be a problem-solving solution rather than a creative choice, but I still don't like it. At least I can look at it now without shuddering or having to glance away. :P

Thanks, Florist, for letting me photograph your tree. :D
