At home in the woods drawing

Forest as dwelling

Temple of trees

Illustration and text by Frits Ahlefeldt,

The first Greek temples was based on earlier wood temples and those might have been based on dwellings in the large forests that used to cover Greece in ancient times. I wanted to draw up such an archetype of a dwelling, like hikers can experience, that it is almost like you can feel like the trees make up a dwelling out there in the forest
