Additional Information

With respect to the Tree and the meaning or symbolism to the medallions, in brief, there are seven images that repeat at different sizes. The images represent themes which are cross-cultural and shared in the design motifs found in artwork and architecture of the four ethnicities (Czech, Polish, Croation, and Mexican) historically associated with South Omaha.
