In many old cultures, the birch is a sacred tree that is said to have many health-enhancing properties. Its slender and graceful shape, enveloped by white bark, is its hallmark. Birch bark has been popular with artisans for centuries because of its characteristic texture as well as its suppleness and leather-like flexibility.
The surface is carefully removed and then assembled into panel elements of 480 x 480 mm. Their easy handling now allows them to be used also as wall coverings and for the production of pictures from real birch bark.
