It is often said that wounds suffered at the sea heal on land and that wounds suffered on land heal at the sea. In this sense, this piece combines sea salt with rosin lacquer. The rosin is extracted by distillation of the resin of the maritime pine. Pines secrete this resin to protect themselves from some parasites. To heal its scars, in a way.
