The carving was made from wood of a eucalyptus
The bough of a storm-damaged tree has been carved into a bust of Highlands garden architect Osgood MacKenzie.
The piece has been unveiled in Inverewe Garden, which Mr MacKenzie created in the 1800s and is now owned by the National Trust for Scotland.
Graham Thomson, from West Yorkshire, made the carving in wood from a eucalyptus.
Plants and trees in the large garden at Poolewe benefit from the North Atlantic Drift, a warm ocean current.
Inverewe's collection includes Chinese rhododendrons, Himalayan blue poppies and Mediterranean rock roses.
