    I gave this to my mother this past feb. for her 88th BD. All the leaves represent her children and spouses, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren.
    The large corner leaves say wife and mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great- grandmother

    Thanks a bunch all. I forgot to say that in the center is my fathers BD on the left, my mothers BD on the right, and the date of their wedding in the center.

    Thank you all for the thoughtful comments. I hung it on the wall in her family room and she sees it every day.

    That is absolutely stunning! I cannot believe how beautiful that is! I wish I could so something like that, but it's going to be MANY years before I reach that level!

    How wonderful!
