The Tree of Life plays an important role in the mythologies of many peoples and belongs to their cosmic order. It stands in the center of the world and connects with its roots and tops heaven, Earth and the underworld. The greeting card by Vitra provides exactly this meaning and thus is suitable for various occasions as a greeting card. The card with a gift can be presented or sent by post with the corresponding envelope.
Motif by Alexander Girard
The Tree of Life is a motif designed by Alexander Girard. As part of the exhibition “The Magic of a people", the tree of life decorated the entrance as powerful ornament in 1968.
Based on this exhibition, the design - as part of the Home Complements Collection - is smaller scaled for the greeting card, and is also available upon request as a 70 x 70 cm-large mural picture.Also in our blog:
