Białowieża Forest, the last remaining primeval forest in Europe, recently became a site of conflict between two worldviews, one fighting to preserve the forest for its biological values, the other seeing it as a source of material that can be sold. This wood is being traded cheaply to produce firewood, chipboards or pallets.

The sculpture in a form of euro-pallet is made from the most luxurious and expensive european wood – black oak. It gets its dark colour from being soaked in water for hundreds of years. The pallet is made out of the certified wood that was lying under water for more than 1350 years.
