The crown of The Tree of HOpe

A recent installation in Dayton, Ohio

In December of 2012 Jonquil-Design installed this lovely sculpture in the new Oncology wing of Miami Hospital South.

Tree of Hope Banner

Banners for the new Cancer Center include an image designed after the look of the sculpture

We were delighted when the hospital staff showed us the new banners for the Cancer Center; designed with the sculpture in mind.

Crystal

There are 500 “New Leaf” Swarovski crystals on the sculpture

And there are 2000 steel leaves welded to the branches. And 200 LED lights in the crown as well

Completed Tree of Hope

This sculpture took 6 weeks to build, 5 days to transfort and 3 days to install.

We built the sculptures in the Portland Studio; Gabriel drove it across country and we installed in late December 2012. With great help from a very co-operative General Contractor, and the Hospital Staff!
