The Tree of Life in Prague Gallery

strom zivota or the tree of life The unique example of baroque wood-carving, Strom Zivota, or The Tree of Life, is exhibited in the National Gallery.

Strom Zivota comes from an abolitioned Czech church close to Nova Bystrice. The unique piece of carving stands two metres high, and decorated by a number of miniature statues. The date of origin is back in the 17th century. Originally, it was thought to be a piece of art made as expiation of a Czech monk. As a matter of fact, it is a masterpiece of a master carver from South Germany.
