Elzeardo Bouffier: The man, who planted trees
( Issued by the BRITISH ART MEDAL SOCITY (BAMS),1991)
The, fictitious, story of Elzeard Bouffier moved Nicola Moss to create this medal showing the man in a stark sun-baked landscape, bent over and planting acorns. Bouffier, according to the story, believed that the land was dying because of the lack of trees.
The medal, cast in bronze, measures 68mm.
