Sacred Fire Pot procession

Sacred Fire Pot by dallas collectif (Camille Gaillard & Salomon Tyler) is a new ritual object, re-interpreting the traditional fire pot and referring to its ancestral strength as a place for gathering. It has a ceremonial shape and is transportable with the help of four people. On the 20th of March it will move in a procession over the Roman road that runs through the orchards of Hesbaye in order to be lit at the fruit company Pipo in Sint-Truiden. A symbol of care, guard of the plants against the frost, protector of the future crops and fruits, and above all a representative of all the elements and people who have this same temporal and punctual movement.
