A birth trail through this wonderful forest in Leysin, Vaud. Switzerland.
Part of the Ailyos environmental art summer exhibition in and around the Swiss canton of Vaud.
The trail starts with a 'conception pool' where a seed can be planted to symbolise the beginning of life. The trail then continues through the forest intersected with fertility symbols stepping stones and a log to be navigated. This all represents the hazards of burgeoning life in the womb. The trail blazer then arrives at the vulva made from wood hanging between trees. A metaphor for new entry into new life and existence. Above is hanging a sun sculpture which is a welcome to the World.
