We engrave the wood with copper, because we find both materials to be some of the most essential materials of nature. The the wood grows on the land, the copper is found in the soil or rocks beneath it. The expression of the wengé wood is very textural and almost looks like fertile soil. It makes us think of the world and the nature as so much older than humankind. It puts our own tiny life in a bigger timeframe.
