The Tate Britain art museum in London has taken its holiday decor to the next level by flipping its Christmas tree upside-down and hanging it from the ceiling.
The Tate unveiled the Christmas tree Thursday in its newly reopened entrance rotunda. Iranian artist Shirazeh Houshiary created the piece, which features gold-plated roots at the top, highlighting a part of the tree that’s usually chopped off before the Christmas season.
“I would like us to contemplate that the pine tree is one of the oldest species and recognize the roots are the source of its continued stability, nourishment and longevity,” Houshiary said in a press release.
