Aristotle once claimed that nature abhors vacuum. We sometimes rephrase it as – nature doesn´t like voids. So in my work I wanted to show that by placing fir cones in holes of logs which were made by woodpeckers.

Another renamed proverb refers to origins and end, meaning – you become the same matter what you were made from. In this case pencils go back to wood, they become what they were originally made of.
