The tree is usually small, wiry and carries aromatic white flowers in tight clusters. Seeds are produced in pods, which are at and coiled into a spring shape. Those pods are perfectly adjacent to each other on a sphere of pentagon cones representing a stunning level of engineering from which the fractals Acacia Surface Series are derived from .

 

 

 

 

Acacia Surface Series are sculptural pieces that are designed.  The collection is constructed from fractals of adjacent wooden pentagons.

Acacia Tortillas is also known to be a natural habitat for many indigence wildlife such as parrots
