Well, he might not be the Pope yet, but Barry went on to build a church out of actual living trees. Not wood, but living trees with leaves and all. Can you imagine?
Barry Cox’s creativity speaks volumes. He found his calling in gardening and started a gardening company. His strong religious beliefs and his impeccable creative ability inspired him to create this breathtaking sight.
He had traveled all over the world to see different historically significant churches like Notre Dame in his younger days, and these places greatly influenced the design of his magnificent tree cathedral.
To execute this mind-blowing structure, Barry Cox used a mighty hydraulic spade to uproot and re-planted matures trees on the property.
This project took him four years to create, but he did not give up halfway. He achieved his goal, and that is a lesson to be learned by all.
The welcoming entrance of the church is very warm, with the trees creating a serene ambiance.
The entire cathedral is made up of trees and natural materials, from the roof to the walls. It also has a classic shape due to a structure of sturdy iron frames.
The ceiling is made up of Laciniata trees, and the walls are built with Leptospermum trees.
The interior of the church is bathed in natural light because the roof is built in such a way that sunlight shines through into the cathedral; therefore, electricity is unnecessary.
Aside from the beautiful and luxurious interior, the landscape is also breathtaking: From the aesthetic use of flowers to well-organized arrangements, the beauty of the church speaks for itself.
Although Barry Cox built it for his pleasure, it has since become a place chosen by many people for marriages or other celebrations, and might soon go on to be a historical site.
Thumbs up to Barry for carrying out such fantastic feat. What a creative genius!
