“Old Mama Oak” represents a large natural “roundel” block of Box, and must have come from a tree at least over 300 years old, given the slow growth of Box. The Oak tree depicted is an ancient oak growing nearby where I live, and is over 500 years old. It seemed the most appropriate image for the block.
