The "Mother Nature" image at the facade of the ERDB Building represents the capacity to bear offsprings.
The features of the childbearing woman, her breasts, bosom, and abdomen (or the womb) are empahasized. She stands on a tree stump, her hands raised and face looking upwards.
During FORI years, the fertile woman symbolized the goal of an institution to bring about forest regeneration. Today, it remains to signify the capacity to perpetuate abundance of nature's blessings.
