Crossing of energy paths

This is the stump of a tree formed by multiple trees that grew into each other. In Latvian folklore there are paths of energy that crisscross the planet. Where these intersections occur trees grow together to form great elderly giants such as this one. This belief is so widely held that in order to cut one down, one must be granted permission by the local government. This tree was cut years after its death and was done in order to save it. To have one of these tree clusters on your property or near your home is seen as a blessing.
