Berceuses/Lullaby

Cherrywood, about 65 x 95 x 130 cm each, 2008-09.
Reproduction of a pair of rocking-chair, called "berceuses" in Québec, made in the wood of one and only tree. It was often commissioned as wedding gifts to peasants who worked as carpenters during winter when snow covered their fields.
