"Folium" (the so-called "Descartes leaf") - is another work in the artist's output. The sculpture is the effect of the need to join two different structures into one, such as concrete and wood.

Concrete reflects the "backbone" of today's existence with which we meet every day (hard, raw and yet stable). The base simple in form reflects stability. It is the need for this stability that has pushed the artist towards works related to such a harsh and at the same time difficult to form material.

The second element in this work is the unique wood-ash structure. Assimilation and the ability to adapt to the raw forms of life harmonize well with each other. Wood is the element that gives plasticity and finesse to the simple and cold forms conveyed by concrete. It is wood that makes the whole work consistent.

In the very centre of the sculpture, the artist placed cylinders of different diameter and length, symmetrically located in relation to the main element. They are a good complement to the work and give it stability as well as the sense of elemental harmony.
