The “Tree of Life” is one of William Morris’ most well known works. In this piece, based on original designs by Morris, you can readily see his impressive attention to detail. The curved leaves of the tree give a sense of flowing movement throughout the piece, while the remarkable variety of green and blue shades in the foliage adds depth. Throughout, an abundance of peach and red flowers burst through the leaves, and birds are poking through between the branches, adding color and visual interest. The “Tree of Life”, in the Biblical account, is the tree in the Garden of Eden, whose fruit gives one immortality, and is a symbol for everlasting life. It is this fruit that Adam and Eve were told not to eat, but of course, the serpent tempts them into disobeying God and they were banished forever from the Garden of Eden. The “Tree of Life” is a truly distinctive piece of wall décor. This tapestry is lined and has a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are purchased separately.
