Árbol de la Vida (Tree of Life) is a theme of clay sculpture created in central Mexico.

The fashioning of the trees in a clay sculpture began in Izucar de Matamoros, Puebla but today the craft is most closely identified with Metepec. Traditionally, these sculptures are supposed to consist of certain biblical images, such as Adam and Eve, but recently there have been trees created with themes completely unrelated to the Bible.
