This giant tree, cut and abandoned, visually evokes (I wish it didn't) Yoru Iwatani's runaway Pac-Man game, born in Japan in 1980.  The tree, an arboreal Pac-Man, finally stilled in sylvan death, visually re-offers the P-M's massive snapping jaw, re-imagining the endless chomp-chomping of its ravaging, insatiable e-jaws--iconic jaws for our greedy, disaster-capitalist times.  A tree felled is a violation of natural law--like a beheading.
