Giant Tree Made of 80 Different Types of Fabric
Standing 18 meters (or 46 feet) tall, is an awesome new tree sculpture made of 80 different types of fabric. The Baobab Tree, created by Pirate Technics, was inspired by Africa’s baobab tree, which is the oldest living specimen in Africa and has long been a symbol for community. Rings about 16 feet wide were used to build the tree before it was wrapped with fabric. It sits outside the Southbank Centre in London, England.
"During the summer, thousands of people will gather in London and visitors from across the globe will be stepping closer to one another," said Creative Director Beatrix Eden of Pirate Technics.
