This traditional bowl is painted with the logo of CNPC - China National Petroleum Corporation, a Chinese state-owned oil and gas corporation and the largest integrated energy company in China, which is currently extracting oil from the Amazon rainforest. The logo becomes a decorative frieze for the traditional bowl, as to suggest the level of impact of the company with the native populations that are losing their territories. The wood piece alludes to the deforestation process involved in the extractions.
