The Tree of Life located on Discovery Island in Animal Kingdom is one beautiful sight to behold. I have always been amazed with the beauty of this tree with all the animals that are carved into the tree.
There is 325 animals carved into the base of the trunk. There are reptiles, mammals, birds and fish. There was 20 artists who carved all those animals into the trunk. Each animal that was carved into the base of the tree had to be completed in 6-10 hours or the plaster that they were carving into would become to hard to work with.
The Tree of Life is a great photo opportunity. Many people take pictures of this tree either by itself or with them in it. One of my favorite photo opportunities is to take pictures of all the animal carvings. I think every time I go see the tree I see something different.
Weather it is your first time to Animal Kingdom or your 100th be sure to take time and enjoy the tree of life and all its beauty. Who knows you might see something that you haven’t seen before.
