About the work
Daba, Dažbog is the god of fertility, the Sun, the protector of weddings, nature, wealth, giving and aid. For this piece, the artist chose richly ornamented poplar base material. The backrest with full back support consists of clean lines stretching across the whole length of the back, while the upper section is extended and also functions as a headrest. The middle darker part of the rest reminds us of a daily movement of the sun descending to the seat and transforming into the Moon - actually going to rest. The edge of the circle (seat) slowly slopes into semi-circle with stable and firm legs reminiscent of those of the ungulates protruding from it. Daba chair is inspired by Svarun chair and as every piece listed on these pages is unique and made out of single piece of poplar.

About the artist
iving in small peaceful village and being surrounded by beautiful forests of Croatia simply gives inspiration to create art just as extraordinary. For this artist, that is unique brand of chainsaw carved furniture, each piece has been made from single tree trunk and is absolutely unique. His bond with nature can be seen in each of his works as nature and freedom is something he cherish the most in life and obviously his main inspiration and motive while carving. When he grabs chainsaw his mind is completely free without any bonds and chains on what his next move should be and how piece would have to look like. Figure of each artwork is solely inspired by the forms of each log and it’s natural abstraction. Material he uses for his carvings is carefully picked, he personally choose trees that are dead or about to dry out due to natural infulences such as various diseases, lighting strikes or insects, but still in good enough condition to be used and to look great. Perserving nature is, after all, most respected principle in this artistic business
