About the Artwork:

"Everyone is familiar with the tree. It is one of the most recognised shapes in the world.  Children draw trees soon after they represent the human figure.  The tree is a form of wonder, fascination, amusement and pleasure as well as function.  The tree reminds us all of the scale of nature, of time before and beyond our own lives.  A symbol of hope, growth, unity and shelter, it suggests the binds and roots of the family whilst inspiring the ambition to stand alone." – Jackie Staude
