STORY

The Argo was the divinely-inspired ship said to have been built by Argus with the aid of the goddess Athena and to have carried Jason and his crew from Volos (Iolcos) to Colchis and back again. In Greek mythology, the Argo is a unique vessel as it has been endowed with the ability to speak.

This piece of fir tree wood was discovered in the middle part of Baba’s Valley, in Bucegi Mountains. This particular valley is one of the wildest parts of these mountains, because it’s difficult access and rich vegetation. I found this wood during my first trip there, in an October day with a perfect weather. I remember how amazed I was by all the trees which were torn apart by avalanches and piled up on the bottom of the valley.
