The leaves of the trees are for the healing of the nations (Revelation 22:2)

This reflective memorial, another exhibition designed to give people the opportunity to reflect on the impact the Coronavirus pandemic has had on them and their communities, will open in Southwell Minster next month.

The Leaves of the Trees is designed by sculptor Peter Walker, currently artist in residence at Lichfield Cathedral, and is made up of 5,000 steel leaves, each featuring the word ‘HOPE’ and will be laid out on the cathedral floor, creating an impression of fallen autumn leaves when it opens on May 11.

It will be available until June 6 and the exhibition has been part funded by the Minster’s partners at Newark & Sherwood District Council. It will tour other cathedrals later this year.
