Thanks, Robert, for that stream of associations – definitely resonates.

I tend to think of this not so much as a Christmas tree, but homage / recreation of Yggsdrasil, the World Tree of Norse mythology (in touch with my forebears), though elements of every mythology appear in these branches. Rather than a Christmas star, topping the tree is a peacock feather, to watch over my home – the peacock, with its hundred eyes sacred to Hera, sister-wife to Zeus, and patroness of marriage and the domestic landscape.
