About the Jungle Book Tree
This 10′ tall custom sculpture by artists Rosana Aziernicki and Gina M. stands proudly in the courtyard of Pasadena Playhouse and proves that recycling can be beautiful. Standing on a trunk of reclaimed decking wood, the sculpture features leaves and flowers made from over 500 recycled water bottles that were collected throughout the day during last month’s Playhouse Block Party.

After Jungle Book, the tree will be renamed after the winner of The Jungle Book Coloring Contest and given a home within The Playhouse District.
