I saw a Tree of Life at Animal Kingdom.

Is someone selling this tree? I see lots of little price tags hanging from the branches.

Love this one! Voted for it in the derby, now buying 1.

Congrats on the print Patrickspens!

I feel so calm and zen-like looking at this, there should be some wise old saying to go with the shirt. Something like,"Do not ponder why the tree floats, but instead let your mind float like the tree"

...

um, maybe not.

I'm not so sure what all those white things are hanging from the rope around the trunk. They look suspiciously like, hmm, small cylindrically shaped pieces of cotton.

The biggest question in my mind is: Where does the water come from? Because seriously, wouldn't it run out?

HOLY HECK, are those Charlie Brown's kites in that tree?!

Hahaha! Love the right up for the artist bio.

Wait, if patrickskpens is an analogy for the giving tree, and the shirt today is by patrickspens--does that mean, in fact, that patrickspens IS the tree?


Ah woot, your wisdom contains much oddness.

LOL, I figured this tree one would do well. Very peaceful and it has a nice waterfall effect there.

It reminds me of Jōmon Sugi, thought to be over 2,000 years old in Japan.

This shirt seems to compliement the Aztec Sunset one. In for one, might end up buying the Aztec one to go with it.

I half expected to see some sort of Harry Potter reference on shirt.woot tonight after reading Facebook statuses about it all day.

Fantastic design, though! Once again, patrickspens, you put Sandy Utah on the map!

So is this tree from the Japanese version of Ferngully, keeping Tim Curry locked away until a giant robot accidentally cuts it down?

Now I'm glad I missed the Harry Potter Midnight release to see today's Shirt Woot. This shirt is way hotter than Hermione.

Something about Patrickspens and trees just equals insta-win, both in the derby and on my torso.

I'm loving the reference to The Giving Tree in the artist description! That's a well-placed childhood throwback.

I don't buy Woot shirts all the time and will typically look at the day's shirt without much of a second glance. But without fail, every time it's one of patrick's, I start an inner debate about whether or not to spend the 10 bucks and get it. Well done as always, patrick!! I may very well end up with ANOTHER one of your shirts. =)

Gah. That tree is totally defenseless. Why, a mere champion of dragons, for example, if launched at the proper speed and trajectory, could easily destroy its flotation rope.

Lovely design!

Though I'm confused by the white tags. Are they weights, like bonsai? And the rope-like band at the base, could that be wire?

I'm not the creator of the design, but it's obviously influenced by traditional Japanese Shinto beliefs.

The rope around the middle is called a "shimenawa" and the hanging paper on the rope shaped like lightning bolts is called "shime". Its considered a way of marking something that is sacred, along with warding away evil spirits.

The strips of paper hanging from the branches is similar to the Tanabata Festival, where people hang wishes written on paper strips, "tanzaku", on the branches of bamboo trees.

I keep looking for Sam Worthington and a few other 7' tall blue people but I don't see them. Can someone point them out?

Man, I really really REALLY want this shirt, but I just splurged on another woot shirt recently, and I'm really short on cash. But this shirt is so beautiful! I love the water cascading down, it's a beautiful effect.

Agreed. But then, if I got every shirt I liked, I'd be..what, very happy? This didn't turn out so well.

On another note, I paid for two random shirts, and got a lovely third with it, which was nice. I like all three, and this (random shirts) is my way of getting 2 for the price of one (almost) and not having to choose which one I like best.

I've pretty much reached my limit on woot shirts, but some shirts like this one are just too good to not have.

Thanks nskripchun! I was reading through all the posts wondering if nobody knew, but you saved the day. My 17 year old son threw a Tanabata party last year, with all his friends. I made california rolls (along with some good ol' american style grilled burgers and hot dogs). I made rice krispie treats to look like assorted sushi for dessert, and amazingly, that went over better than the real sushi Then the kids wrote their wishes and dreams and hung them on our apple tree outside. Good good fun....

I think it's a Camphor tree and that it's full of Totoro.
