This mosaic mural tells the story of a magical tree which is home to silvery sands beach overlooked by a fairy-tale castle and guarded by mighty underwater creatures. The windswept branches of The Story Tree twirl and twist, buzzing with fairies and butterflies, gnomes and ladybirds. The tree bark radiates with the rainbow glow of the mosaic tiles, the iridescence of the glass beads and the environmental nod of the humble plastic bottle caps. Nestled under an ancient oak tree, The Story Tree is firmly rooted spreading its magic across the seasons and the generations to come.
