Grafting has a history within architecture, design and art. Artists and designers have explored grafting strategies to create living furniture, buildings and visual art as well. Grafting is depicted in Greek mythology in the stories of Philemon and Baucis. Joined together in eternity by the gods Jupiter and Saturn as a single standing tree. Their story depicted numerous times throughout art history including in the paintings of Rembrandt.
