Medium: 24 carat Gold Leaf on Black Perspex
Dimensions: 60cm x 60cm with an attractive black boxed frame
The Tree of Life symbol has great spiritual meaning for many people and religion. The Tree of Life is a universal symbol found in many spiritual traditions. It stands for many things, including wisdom, protection, strength, bounty, beauty, and Redemption.
I chose the black background as from nowhere something magical can appear. I wanted it to be in this medium so that it could embody all that "The Tree of Life" is!
I used variegated gold leaf on the trunk to give it a realistic effect.
All the tree is created using 24 carat gold leaf. I enjoyed the process as it was the first time that I have used gold leaf. I will definitely be using gold and silver leaf in future projects!
