The Tree of Life folk embroidery hoop kit is inspired by a textile fragment with a cypress tree motif. The Cypress tree motif originated as a Persian motif then made it way into ancient Roman and Greek art and became a symbol of mourning which continued into medieval art. In the Christian age, classical symbols of mourning came to be overlaid with connotations of the Resurrection because of the understanding that death is the path to new life.
