tumbleweed tree

First, I have to apologize for the quality of these pictures (they are from my i-phone) but I saw this tree tonight at Hotel Terra, where we had dinner, and just had to document it! It was very beautiful and whimsical in person. It appears to be made out of something similar to tumbleweed and the simplicity of it just struck me:
