"Against Forgetting" is a fine art print of an original piece by Nina Montenegro. A wax rubbing of a tree stump is adjacent to an inked fingerprint. This piece has been featured in Orion Magazine, Camas Magazine, and High Country News.
I encountered an enormous stump on Orcas Island (likely a Doug Fir) and tenderly took a rubbing with wax crayon. I had always marveled at the similarity between the rings of a tree and the rings of our human fingerprints, but I was shocked to see the rings actually align when I took an inked fingerprint and enlarged it to the scale of the tree rings. What resulted was a harmonious depiction of humanity's kinship (and belonging) with nature.
