STORY

According to Chilean legend, the Caleuche is a large ghost ship sailing the seas around Chiloé (a small island off the coast of Chile) at night. The Caleuche is said to be a being who is conscious and sentient. The ship appears as a beautiful and bright white sailing ship, with 3 masts of 5 sails each, always full of lights and with the sounds of a party on board, but quickly disappears again, leaving no evidence of its presence. The ghost ship is also known to be able to navigate underwater.

This special piece of willow tree wood was found in Letea forest, in the Danube Delta. This forest is considered a World Heritage Site because it’s the most northern forest containing subtropical elements, such as a tropical creeper. Tree old tree was close to Sulimanca channel which allows the waters of the delta to flood the forest. I explored those parts in a mid spring day, and I was the right time, since there were no active mosquitoes. Otherwise, in the summertime, I think it should have been quite a difficult place to be.
