Helaine Blumenfeld sculpture installed outside the Woolf Institute

11th January 2018

Helaine Blumenfeld's monumental (and very beautiful) statue "Tree of Life: Encounter" was installed outside the Woolf Institute building in Westminster College grounds this morning.

Made from a 42 ton block of Italian marble, the completed sculpture weighs 5250 kg and is over 3 metres tall.

Entitled "Tree of Life: Encounter" the work was  inspired by the inscription of the foundation stone of the new Woolf Institute building: “A threefold cord is not quickly broken" [Ecclesiastes 4.12].
