Vincent won the commission with his model “ The Tree of Life”.The Tree of life is constructed in bronze with hand welded bronze leaves. The structure represents the double helix a symbol associated with the structure of DNA, the building block of human existence.The sculpture reflects in the water and against the glass quietly interrupting its environment. It is a symbol for a growing county and for a young, progressive council.
