Forestscapes : by Mamakan x Esse
A series of botanical sculptures called Forestscapes.
Mamakan x Esse Forestscape is an installation of foraged native flora and fauna from Mamakan’s forest, Velskov, in Parau, Waitakere Ranges and are ever-evolving art pieces that transition through the seasons.
The Forestscape artwork is a whole new approach to botanical sculpture where Mamakan has imagined a whole native forest landscape: sand becomes volcanic rock, mushrooms become mountains and foliage become giant trees. Each artwork is composed of foraged pieces from Velskov that encapsulates a landscape that can be displayed on your desk or mantle piece.
