The largest Dragon made with woods in Europe

A work by the Venetian sculptor Marco Martalar in Magrè
The sculpture is more than 6 meters high and 7 meters long. This is part of a project to enhance the wood of Avez del Prinzep (the highest white fir in Europe died in Lavarone in November 2017).
The realization of Marco Martalar dominates the woods of the Alpe Cimbra from Lavarone and it’s the keypoint of the thematic path called “Lavarone Green Land”, which involves other surprisingly installations.

The project goal is to create a thematic path in green perspective aimed at enhancing. In addition, the use of the material recovered from the woods hit by storm Vaia.
The wood used for the realization of the work has not been treated and for this reason the mighty Dragon with the passage of time and years will gradually disappear fully embracing the philosophy of the sculptor linked to the natural concept of "death and decomposition".
