STORY

Lôtān, Litan or Litānu was a sea monster in Canaanite mythology, similar to the Leviathan in Hebrew mythology. Lotan seems to have been prefigured by Têmtum, the serpent killed by the benevolent storm god Hadad in Syrian seals of the 18th – 16th century BC.

This piece of sycamore wood was found in the hilly forest around Batanii Mari, in Bodoc Mountains. Those parts are still home to some wild forests and serene clearings. It was a summer afternoon with big cotton clouds on the sky. This little wood was partly covered by fallen leafs, so I was lucky to almost step on it, and in this was, revealing its presence.

 

CRAFTING PROCESS

This fragment was not cut from a living tree. It was found lying on the ground.

This piece of wood needed cleaning, washing, brushing and sanding.

It was also treated against harmful insects, pests and mold.
