Huli Jing’s Story

In Japanese mythology Ten  means sky and jin  means god or deity. The original meaning of Tenjin, sky deity, is almost the same as that of Raijin (a god of thunder). For the first few centuries, then, Tenjin was seen as a god of natural disasters, worshipped to placate him and avoid his curses.

This old piece of wood was part of a secular oak tree which was brought down by a storm. I found it while walking through the forest between two small villages in Câmpia Neajlovului, not far from Bucharest. It’s a young and simple forest, except for several huge old oak trees which seem like ancient guardians. I tool this piece in a pleasant spring afternoon while dogs were barking in the distance and happy birds were singing for the new season.

The Crafting Process

This piece of wood was not cut from a living tree. It was found dry, on the ground. 

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