Design story:

1872: Darwin uses the Tree of Life as a metaphor to connect all forms of creations in his Theory of Evolution. It is also called Tree of Knowledge, connecting heaven and the underworld. This is a widespread mythology, and hence part of many cultures. At the top of the tree, a superb hornbill evokes the supreme elevation of the soul to a spiritual paradise, related to the fantastic habitat of this bird in the virgin forests of Borneo. In the tree’s roots two lions cling together with a serpent – symbols of danger and temptation. The finest work of Master Craftsmen give a rich and unique texture to this creation.
