Natura Mirabilis – Panel No. 11

This photo (80 x 120 cm) is located on Place des Gouffier, opposite the collegiate church.

In the past, cedar was a symbol of strength, dignity and courage. Incense, made from its resin, is said to promote concentration and stimulate intellectual activity. But resin leaks are often a reaction to external aggressions. They are used to expel the attacker and can signal necrosis of the trunk.

On the cartel

The cedar is weeping drops of amber. A mysterious treasure hidden in the depths of Nature, the sap overflows, it is life that is springing forth. The richness of materials and the association of flexibility and hardness, are complementary rather than in opposition.
