The SiMBA Trees of Tranquillity are stunning hand crafted, life sized sculptures, made from copper, where each leaf on the tree represents a baby who has died. The Tree’s design is unique to SiMBA, and is adorned with individual leaves, each engraved with a personal message. Its aim is to offer bereaved parents the opportunity to honour their baby in a simple, quiet way and will effectively ‘grow’ as leaves are added.
The Tree of Tranquillity is not just for the newly bereaved but also parents who sadly lost their baby years ago and were perhaps provided with little or no recognition of their baby’s existence. The Tree will provide the means to express a private and public declaration in memory of the lost hopes and dreams for the baby. It is a beautiful symbol of remembrance.
Sometimes quiet, shared actions, such as placing a leaf on the tree, can say more and be more meaningful than words.
