Jakob Hansen, Rural View With Cottage & Pond

The striking form of a four-pronged tree casts a broad reflection in a tranquil pond. While a quiet cottage, partially shaded, cuts a distinctive shape through a woodland thicket.

This fine rural view by Danish artist, Jakob Hansen, celebrates the curious beauty often found within nature. The combination of pond and tree is not man-made yet they complement each other as if planned for eternity. Also note the second tree, which creates a diagonal line and draws the eye towards the yonder - a dense horizon with distant hills.
