Product Description

The Tree of Life is inspired by one of Michelangelo’s drawings. The original one is located in Milan, and was designed by Marco Balich, jointly with studio Gioforma.
For six months, it has served as a powerful and evocative beacon for millions of visitors to the Universal Exposition in Milan. 

The Tree of Life’s roots lie in one of the most fruitful historical periods for Italian art, the Renaissance. In the late 1530s, the Pope commissioned Michelangelo to re-design Piazza del Campidoglio. The artist modified its shape and paved the packed-dirt surface. The pavement itself featured a complex, symbolic pattern in which overlapping lozenges formed a twelve-point star indicating the constellations. 

 

I drew inspiration from Marco Balich's outstanding work to make this marvellous object come true for any art enthusiasts.

In addition to the Renaissance, this grand structure – a monument, sculpture, installation, building, and work of art all at once - also reflects a complex symbology shared by many cultures, so that the Tree of Life becomes an emblem of Primordial Nature, the primeval life force that gave rise to the universe. 

The Tree of Life is not merely tradition and religious symbolism: it also reaches out to the future, to innovation and technology.
