Commemorating the burnt forests of Greece and the Mediterranean in the last summers.

The ancients believed that trees are sacred. Yet, during the December ‘08 events in Greece the xmass tree on Syntagma parliament square (Athens) was burnt in protest.

For the sake of holy x-mass it was quickly replaced and protected by special forces. A paradox.
