Budapest-based artist Krisztián Balogh created a stunning piece of land art that looks as perfect as a digital rendering. Created in 2012, the land sculpture , called World Tree, was carved from peat bog in the shape of a tree viewed from an aerial perspective. The hand-carved World Tree stretches 10 meters (32 feet) in diameter in an undisclosed rural area. The artist, who has done several land art installations and sculptures, often looks to nature for inspiration.

The carefully carved peat slabs float atop a bog. Water that shows through the gaps of the artwork give the World Tree its likeness to branching rivers. + Krisztián Balogh Via Colossal Images via Krisztián Balogh
