STORY

The name comes from Basilisk mythology which describes this “king of serpents” as a reptilian creature with sometimes rooster-like qualities who is famous for its ability to kill with a single glance.  Like its bird-lizard cousin, the Cockatrice, basilisks are said to be born from a union of serpents and roosters.

This piece of fir tree root was discovered during a trekking exploration in Piatra Craiului Mountains, in Brusturet Gorges. It was recovered from the riverside, where it was piled up with some other old wood. It was stuck underneath some boulders so I had to clear the area in order to set it free. I was afraid not to break it because of the weight of the rocks, but it turned out it had a strong spirit and it survived.

It was taken on an a long and dry summer day, close to sunset.

CRAFTING PROCESS

This fragment was not cut from a living tree. It was found already fallen.

The old wood needed cleaning, washing, brushing and sanding. It was also treated against harmful insects, pests and mold.
