The Tree of Life is a Universal symbol found in many spiritual traditions. It symbolizes life itself with its branches reaching for the Heavens "Father Sky" and links to the roots buried in "Mother Earth". Some of the ancient lore comes from the concept that all living creatures arise from the earth, the source of life and nourishment for all. Legends say that The Sacred Dove sits in the branches of the Tree of Life and appears with the fruit of the tree and vases of the waters of life.
The tree has become a symbol of love, wisdom, rebirth, strength, redemption, friendship, bounty and encouragement.
An example of modern applique, this patchwork or "pieced work" is a form of needlework that involves sewing together pieces of fabric into a larger design. The larger design is usually based on repeat patterns built up with different color shapes. Precise joining makes for patchwork that lies flat without puckers.
