Trinity Root (2005)

Made by Steve Tobin.


Trinity Root is a bronze casting inspired by the remaining stump and root of a 70-year-old sycamore (wilde vijgeboom) tree that shielded St. Paul's Chapel against falling debris during the collapse of the Twin Towers in 2001. In 2005, the finished three-ton sculpture was hoisted by a crane into the courtyard of Trinity Church. You can walk through the sprawling root branches which are 20 feet long, 15 feet wide, and 12.5 feet tall.
