The sacred tree of life is a symbol that has inspired many artists and craftsmen, including the works of Pre-Raphaelite William Morris (1834-1896). In Tree of Life Ruby tapestry based on William Morris tapestry art from the Victorian age, we see the tree in a rich ruby background. The sacred tree is flowering and is surrounded by more flowering plants of the forest floor. The ornate and elegant border with its greens and pinks complements the main scene very well. In biblical references, the Tree of Life represents the tree which provides eternal life or immortality. In other cultures, the tree represents the connection between all living things and the connection between heaven and earth. Rich in detail and sumptuous in color, this version of William Morris' Tree of Life is a beautiful work of art. This Tree of Life tapestry "Tree of Life Ruby" is backed with a lining and has a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are purchased separately.
