Charles Darwin inspired book bench design progress

My book bench design inspired by Charles Darwin's 'On the Origin of Species', is progressing well. The design is based on the 'Tree of Life' metaphor that he used to explain the connection between all organisms.

I have used a great variety of leaves on the tree to symbolise the human race. The roots of the tree hold images that represent the history of evolution.... from microscopic life, to fossils and man's ancient early artefacts.


Books About Town is organised by the National Literacy Trust and Wild in Art and aims to celebrate stories linked to London and promote reading for enjoyment.
The benches will start to appear on the streets of London from 4th July and will be in place until early September. They will then be auctioned to raise funds for the work of the National Literacy Trust in helping to raise Literacy levels for people of all ages.
