CONSTITUTION HILL NEAR THE BROADSTONE TRAM STOP
I have photographed the hungry tree many times over the last fifteen years but I only noticed this paint-a-box street art a few days ago.
The Hungry Tree in Dublin, near my apartment, is an eighty year old London Plane tree that appears to be in the process of devouring a cast iron bench. As the years have passed, the tree has grown, causing it to swallow the parts of the park bench that stands in its way. Its bark now spills over the back of the bench, making it appear as though the seat is being sucked into the tree’s mouth-like trunk.
