Phoebe mean 'shining' and she was a Titaness in ancient Greek mythology. She, along with her 11 siblings, were thrown into Tartarus by her father due to the threat of their size and strength. The Titans were the twelve children of the primordial parents Uranus (Sky) and his mother, Gaia (Earth).
Hjorth-Johansen was struck by the look of power and also a certain vulnerability of this tree as it opens up, revealing its glowing insides.
