With branches stretching heavenward, the tree symbolizes eternal life. Louis Comfort Tiffany, a nature lover, frequently used trees in his scenes. Tiffany, in his own words wrote, the soft meadows from which the tree has its birth, represents the earliest stages of life. Tiffany s words capture the spirit of this creation. The Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation recognizes the Tree of Life as one of Tiffany s most complex and celebrated designs.
