Statue unveiled in new Coventry peace garden

A statue based on intertwined trees has been unveiled in a new peace garden.

Phoenix Tree, at Coventry University, was designed by artist George Wagstaffe, a former lecturer.

The bronze sculpture represents new life, new possibilities and new beginnings, he said.

Mr Wagstaffe added it continued a theme of rebirth which started with his Phoenix statue created for the city in 1962.
