DETAILS

ABOUT

This sculpture was the first to be completed and unveiled in November 1997.

It is an impression of a tree with three trunks as base and intertwining branches that create a dome-like structure.

The three trunks signify stability while the branches and leaves symbolize the “circle of life”, the interrelationships in nature and the vital role that each one plays. The artist intended the piece as a reminder of the communal efforts needed to preserve the environment to sustain life and development for the present and for future generations.
