In Christian symbolism, wings represent the light of the sun, refinement, and proximity to the heavens. They are a symbol of a divine mission. This piece is crafted from a segment of a 200-year-old oak tree that grew in Russia, in historical locations associated with Napoleon. It features a natural split of a massive branch, highlighting the uniqueness of its origin.
The unique relief of the inner surface is accentuated by the light emanating from numerous candles. The central part of the artwork is illuminated from within (the former heart of the tree), reminiscent of a volcanic eruption, contributing to its impressive appearance. This symbolizes creation and the birth of creative force.
