Six Hundred Years. A rope as long as the tallest tree.

I have made a rope work 115.72 cm long, from black and yellow arboreal throw rope.
This is the height of the tallest tree known, a Redwood in a remote area of California called Hyperion. It can snake its way around a space, or up and down the stairs repeatedly, even down the garden. The tree itself is estimated to be 600 years old. Here the 'drawing' is wrapped around a plank.
