Root Museum


Michel Maurice crafted a lamp out of a large root that he picked up in Algeria. It was such a success thatt began collecting roots from his local forest and carving them into creations inspired by the natural shape of the root. It now contains 800 pieces that Maurice displays in his Museum of a Million and One Roots (Musée des Mille & Une Racines) in Cornimont, France.
