The Tree of All Beasts

There is said to be a single tree which bears fruit, and each fruit is a different animal, and all animals are represented (including humans).

It is likewise said that somewhere at the bottom of the sea there grows a tree, green like seaweed and with fruit like oysters, each containing a pearl which grows into a different sea creature. Likewise there is said to be a tree made of cloud somewhere in the sky, whose fruit is birds.


  1. Don't forget the tree of fire, which births all the manifold unbodied spirits of the world.

  2. Great idea! I didn't notice the 'earth, air, fire and water' element of this. I was thinking of 'land, sea and air'.

  3. Cool. And I nice addition by Chris.
