Central panel for the mural at the Palais Stoclet in Bruxelles. The interior of this building was decorated with marble paneling and artworks, and included the mosaic friezes by Klimt and the murals by Ludwig Heinrich Jungnickel. This integration of architects, artists, and artisans made Stoclet Palace an example of Gesamtkunstwerk, one of the defining characteristics of Jugendstil. The sketches of Klimt's work for the dining room can be found in the permanent collection of Museum für angewandte Kunst (MAK) in Vienna. The panel shows different influences, converging together: from the Byzantine mosaic art to the Japanese prints. But especially dominant is the Egyptian culture, in the posture of the figures and the iteration of the decorative motifs.

The Tree of Life, Stoclet Frieze (French: L'Arbre de Vie, Stoclet Frieze) is a painting by an Austrian symbolist painter Gustav Klimt. It was completed in 1909 and is based on the Art Nouveau (Modern) style in a symbolic painting genre.

The Tree of Life has had a significant meaning. It has been linked with several religious practices and traditions, depicting the source and sustenance of man's life. In the bible, The Tree of Life was situated in the middle of the Garden of Eden, a garden that Christians believe their first man and woman were created. Other religions also have similar trees, and many painters in ancient time tried to make a statement about these trees on painting.

Gustav Klimt's tree of life depicts this same tree, with significant features on it. It connects the three worlds surrounding man; those are The Underworld, The Earth, and The Heavens. Its roots are deep into the earth, probably signifying that for life to be sustained, Mother Nature must be involved. The roots then come up to the aboveground and meet into forming the tree's trunk that is on the earth. The tree's branches extent to the heavens, and have various type of fruits and flowers on them. These fruits symbolize that life can be born from the tree.

Death is also symbolized on the tree by the black bird that sits on one of the branches. A black bird has the same meaning in many religions worldwide, even in current African beliefs it is considered as a death sign in many cultures. In real life, the tree has been linked to the many virtues of man, which include strength, wisdom, and beauty. The tree's roots symbolize the man's ‘roots' to his home, with many cultures and beliefs being that man come from soil and will return to it eventually. The branches signify the man's way of life in trying to reach out for more possibilities as in friendship and wealth. The fruits and flowers are in line with man's reproduction.
