To mark the 140th anniversary of The Chapel at Great Ormond Street Hospital, we commissioned a special Prayer Tree by sculptor Matthew Lane Sanderson. Matthew is well known for his striking and fantastical public art, inspired by organic and scientific forms, including the Chronophage of the world famous Corpus Clock.
Taking inspiration from the chapel’s architecture, early Peter Pan illustrations and other design features around the hospital such as the original ‘Wishing Well’ Matthew has created a magical multi-faith piece.
Patients, families and staff can leave their prayers by tying labels that acts as leaves to the tress branches.
