The unbreakable knot

Sailing over the Tumucumaque National Park this week inspired me to carve this 7.7 knot in one of the planet most hardest and most precious wood – lignum vitae (tree of life).

This is a nod to our fragile ecosystem as well as its often forgotten dwellers. For good measure, I borrowed for my background a local symbol I found in a wonderful booklet on the heritage of the WAYANA E APARAI culture published by the Brazilian Indian Museum in Rio.
