This bench keeps the massiveness of the log intact, reminding of nature’s greatness before which we need to humble. The Danube is the force determining life in the delta: it is danger and comfort, brings food and income, it is the source of life and death. When walking on the shore, you can see hundreds of travelling logs, washed and cleaned, carried from who knows where towards the

banks close to the sea. They are like presents for the locals who attach them to their boats and carry them home for heating purposes.
