This mural is born out of the trash of my workshop. It is the end of a plank wich started to crack during the drying. To avoid the wood to split further, we put piece of metal called a crocodile in french. When the wood is dry, we take of 2 inches of wood to avoid damaging the blades of the bandsaw.
I decided to give a new life to this piece of wood by changing the shape and highlighting the defect making it special and unique. I cut the shapes of an almond with a bandsaw and carved grooves between each wave of the crocodile to symbolize the flow of water in a lapiaz. I textured and burned the grooves with a Dremel. Then I applyed a white wax with pearl dust. The sculpture is then fixed on a black background that can be mounted on the wall.
