About this initiative

We needed to raise awareness in Colombia about deforestation, so we decided to use art as a tool and created an exposition called Deforested Bones. Artistry and craftsmanship have merged with a meaningful and unexpected idea.

 

With attention to every detail, "Huesos Deforestados", as they would say in Colombia, "es una berraquera", meaning it's brave, outstanding, and daring.

 

See, without trees the ecosystem will not be suitable for life, affecting already endangered species. We transformed the remains of dead trees in deforested areas and built them into life-size sculptures that represented these threatened species in Colombia.
