Inscribed on the back:

“Whatever you do,
work at it with all your heart,
as working for the Lord,
not for men,
since you know that
you will receive
an inheritance
from the Lord as a reward.
It is the Lord Christ
you are serving.”
(Col 3:23-24 NIV)

Dancing Trees is a standing, slabbed, mesquite screen that was created by Lou Quallenberg for
a private chapel in Bandera, Texas.
