The Tree of Life -
A Mid-Century interpretation of a timeless symbol!

In addition to being the premier location for architectural artifacts, Demolition Depot has a large selection of unique artwork. Objects include vintage prints and photography, paintings, sculptures and garden ornaments, and other interesting items. One of the unique pieces we have in our inventory is the "Tree of Life".

Tree of Life | Demolition Depot in New York

“The Tree of Life is an important symbol in nearly every culture. With its branches reaching into the sky, and roots deep in the earth, it dwells in three worlds- a link between heaven, the earth, and the underworld, uniting above and below. It is both a feminine symbol, bearing sustenance, and a masculine, visibly phallic symbol- another union.” - read more

Kader Attia's Exhibition at Lehmann Maupin
featuring salvaged doors from Demolition Depot

“The installation’s group of anthropomorphic forms alludes to the type of gatherings that have taken place in various public spaces across the world in recent times, demonstrations of clashing values about political views and social space and other politicized issues. The door can also be seen as a metaphor for barriers, confinement, and opportunities for freedom that may be experienced in various realms of modern society.” Lehmann Maupin Gallery
