A beautiful family

Eight vertical sections of trees are reclined against the wall, with an angle that invites people to rest on them. The wood brings memories of home, as structural visualization of human framework which also includes death. We picture the eight of them traveling from the Amazon to Switzerland. Together, as no one would ever split a family. They are arrived, and they look like they are now resting. The sound brings tranquility and profound connection to the roots. We wonder if they are asleep - forever, perhaps? - we wonder what they are dreaming. What do you think?
