wood sculpture by Finnish/Dutch sculptor Lucien den Arend - sculptures in kelo wood 

Kemijärvi constructions - kelo (pine)

Kemijärvi 1987

All the participants were given a section of a trunk of a pine tree - in Finnish kelo which is a pine tree which has died, sometimes hundreds of years ago, and remained standing on its natural location for years after that. The trunk has become silvery gray. Its wood has a very fine grain as trees grow slowly in the harsh climate above the polar circle. This same climate preserves the wood perfectly.

Whereas most other participants made only one work, I ended up with four sculptures. The works are in the collection of the municipality of Kemijärvi.
