The Tree of Life

Woodford Folk Festival, 1997

A pentagonal pyramid filigreed with tree of life imagery opened like a flower to reveal wishing flags attached to a central stamen-like column. The flags had been written by thousands of people during the five-day Woodford Folk Festival. Fireworks showered like pollen into the night sky before the pyramid closed again to be consumed by the bonfire within. In a vast parade of light, hundreds of lantern images of flora and fauna circled the structure, carried by those who had made them.
