Trees of life are traditional Mexican objects, usually with a tree trunk and several branches and candleholders on top. They typically feature Christian images such as Adam and Eve, a Nativity, or the Crucifixion flanked by angels and flowers. But not always! Sometimes they have saints, animals, local fiestas and flowers. They are used during special holidays and celebrations as candleholders and originally were given as gifts to young newlyweds to bring fertility. These very tiny trees (they hold a birthday candle) are from Metepec, outside of Toluca, near Mexico City.
