The TREE OF LIFE or People Tree is the symbol of Columbia, Maryland. The People Tree sculpture celebrates the spirit of Columbia. This public artwork was created by Pierre du Fayet. He came to New York City in 1956 and worked as an industrial designer and commercial artist. Innovative Pierre du Fayet answered an ad to work on a project in Baltimore and joined visionary James Rouse and the group planning Columbia, Maryland in the early 1960's to create this wonderful sculpture.
