STORY

Hubal name comes from the highest ranking god of the 360 gods worshipped in the Kabah, in the pre-islamic Arabia. He was considered the Moon god, having unclear roles and powers. Mircea Eliade affirmed that he was a god of rain and a warrior god. His worship was connected with the Black Stone of the Kaaba. The stones were said to have fallen from the sun, moon, stars, and planets and to represent cosmic forces.

I came up with this tree knob during a hike in Apuseni Mountains. It was close to Scarisoara Glacier and it happened during my first visit there. It was an early summer evening and the visiting time for the cave was almost closing. That turned to be in my favor because the place was completely empty and beautifully lit by the sunset’s golden rays. On the way back I found the knob, attached to a huge fallen tree trunk. I believe that a family of small rodents made their home under the trunk, because I could hear all sorts of funny noises while I took the knob.
