Oak and Horse-chestnut / ナラとトチノキ

November 6, 2011


1 September 1994, France
Leaves of Trees
Oak
Horse-chestnut

They are both common trees in Europe.  Oak is widely used for furniture and building materials, whilst on the other hand Horse-chestnut, which is popular in parks and on roadside greens, is rarely used for furniture or other purposes.

ナラマロニエ(セイヨウトチノキ)の葉が描かれています。どちらもヨーロッパの森や街路でよく見かける木です。ナラ(オーク)は伝統的に家具につかわれてきた素材ですが、マロニエを使った家具というのはほとんど見かけません。マロニエとして親しまれているフランスでは、何かに使われているのかな?
