The Tree Of Life – #Inktober2019 Day 30

On Day 30 I was lucky to go to another exhibition – this time to Made Here By Hand at Midland Junction Arts Centre. It was a display of artworks created by workshop participants.

One participant had created a beautiful, intricate piece of textile art called The Tree Of Life.

It reminded me that tree of life symbolism has a very long history, crossing many cultures.  The Tree Of Life symbolises many things including:

  • Connection to all things
  • No one is an island
  • Continuity through generations
  • Growth
  • Strength
  • Rebirth
  • Immortality.

Celtic people had a profound appreciation for what trees provided – food,  shelter, warmth, home for many animals and insects, and special powers to take care of  all life on Earth.

I think we need more Celtic like reverence for trees.
