About this Piece
The Tree epitomizes Life itself, with its roots drawing up nourishment from the earth, its trunk soaring skyward and its branches reaching out towards the heavens. It is also a symbol of family and relationship: the Family Tree connects us to our past, rooting us in the ground from which we have come; the flowering branches speak of our future, new possibilities, and the next generations; the trunk is where we are now, bridging past and future, weathering changes. The trunk is the individual, while the roots and branches link us to the larger system of the planet, the extended human family to which we all belong. In a real sense all life is inter-related.
We are caught in a network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
An original design by Joanna Scott-McCarthy, one of our co-founder’s daughters.
Dimensions: 9 x 3.5 inches (23 x 9cm)

About the Maker
Beautiful item and well made.
I was delighted to come across this unique piece right after the sudden loss of my husband. I loved the simple modern feel of the metalwork yet the strength of the message behind it. Although an appropriate gift for someone at the beginning of their marriage journey, it also holds significance for me, to remember the love and journey we all continue with those we love and who have and continue to make an impact on our journey, even beyond the physical life. Also, shipping to US from Ireland was fast and the customer service was remarkable. I appreciated the hand written note from Aidan and that this among many other pieces, come from local artists in Ireland. What a great community of talented and kind people!
Excellent product and service from Aidan. Loved the personal touches. Would definitely return as a customer when something takes my eye.
I saw this item recently in a gift shop while in Tipperary. When I returned home I searched the internet and found it at a really good price on Gifts of Ireland. It’s a wedding gift for my aunt and I know she will love it! The service was great and I highly recommend Gift of Ireland. I have already chosen other items I want to buy from them.
