Tree of Lights


  • Describe this image.
  • How does it make you feel? Why do you think that is?
  • Why are there lights hanging in the tree? Who put them there?  What about the violin, the teapot, the boat and the little house?
  • What are the things glowing at the base of the tree?
  • Is this a special tree? What is special about it?
  • How old is the tree?
  • Who is the girl?
  • Is the bird going to land on her hand? Why? Do they know each other? What kind of bird is it?
  • Has the girl been here before?
  • Look beyond the tree. Where is this?

    One of my pupils has made this remark about the image:
    ‘If the girl was that small she could just jump out of the cage because she would fit through the bars but she wants to stay there a bit longer because she wants to see the bird.’
