Silve Tree Sculpture
Above are some images of a silver tree that is in the centre of slough high street, something that I often passed and had never really noticed until I looked up one day.
It's a massive steel structure about 10- 12 feet tall with coloured steel birds hanging from the branches.
On some of the leaves, which unfortunately are quite hard to read are parts of poems written in many different languages ranging from English, Punjabi, Arabic, Urdu and Tamil. I think its quite an inspiring way of bringing all native tongues of all diverse communities in Slough together in one one way. It's not a sculpture that is trying to make a statement but a subtle way of welcoming being from all backgrounds.
