I spent quite a bit of time backpacking and hiking in South America in my 20’s and 30’s. The goal was to get to each country, but life brought my travels elsewhere. There is still time to achieve that goal I think!!
This piece of mokume is reminiscent of the shape of the continent. Each stone is representative of a country where I have spent time backpacking: Columbia, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and the Galapagos ( because I really do consider them to be separate entities !!) The last stone is where I want to go on my next trip… Patagonia… even though it will encompass both Argentina and Chile … hopefully!!
