An exhibition of works by nationally-acclaimed artist and contemporary sculptor Helaine Blumenfeld is at Ely Cathedral until October 28.
‘Tree Of Life’ is one of her largest exhibitions in Europe and has been curated by Jacquiline Creswell.
The exhibition takes its name from one of the most important and enduring themes occupying Blumenfeld’s work.
It captures all the symbolism of the imagery and describes a narrative of renewal, energy, optimism and hope.
Helaine Blumenfeld has been creating bronze and marble sculptures in her Cambridge and Italy-based studios for almost 50 years.
