La Aripuca is a development where gigantic specimens of dead trees and trunks are exposed, found in the middle of the forest or fallen and removed soon after the great storms characteristic of this region.
There is, especially, a large construction representing an “aripuca”, that is, trap, symbolically representing the trap in which the human being entered when initiating the destruction of the forests of the planet.
Here are exhibited 30 species of wood from the region, a total of approximately 500,000 kg.
