Trinity Root maquette sculpture by Steve Tobin. The maquette was modeled after the stump and roots of the sycamore tree that was in the yard at St. Paul's Chapel.
The large sycamore tree in the yard behind St. Paul's Chapel protected the building from major damage on 9/11 but was uprooted in the process. A cast of the root system was later made into a large sculpture by artist Steve Tobin. This maquette is a smaller, working model that helped to guide the creation of the larger bronze memorial.
