The story behind

The European Larch tree is native to the Alps.
It’s very cold tolerant, able to survive winter temperatures down to at least -50 °C, and is among the tree line trees in these mountains, reaching 2500 m altitude.

Sometimes this brave mountain tree grows in the most daring positions, even under repeated avalanches with continuous discharges of snow.

alcarol has discovered a very rare secular dead tree under a snowslide in an arduous position in the Dolomites.
The shape of the trunk were full of nodules and deforming protrusions generated by the assiduous struggle against the snow that broke the branches throughout its entire life.
The tree continued to heal over its wounds and grow new branches, and this long fight is clearly visible inside the wood which is characterized by a totally extraordinary grain and density of very rare knots.
alcarol decided to freeze this unique wood with an iced resin preserving forever the memory of this fearless essence.
