Eskulapstavarna (Rods of Asclepius)
Approx. 200 found objects

Eskulapstavarna consists of more than 200 sticks made of wood, the same amount as the Cancer Associations describe the variety of cancer diseases that exist. The sticks are found in the forest, worked with knife and inscribed text with a fountain pen;” this stick cure cancer”.

Eskulapstavarna was made collateral as a treatment for cancer. With this self-formulated ritual to collect the stick in the forest, carve and burn in the message, I was willing to investigate if the power of thought as a treatment, can reduce a relapse in cancer.
