The most appropriate translation of alsos is that of a sacred grove. In ancient Greece, a sacred grove was a grove of trees dedicated to a god or gods, and its use was restricted to humans in one way or another.
From being dedicated in such a way, these sacred forests became protected and, thus, only available to humans somehow. Of course, a sacred grove could be associated with a sanctuary or a temple, but this wasn’t always the case. However, we tend to know more about those linked to a temple because those have been prioritised by archaeologists and researchers.
Inspired by Greek mythology, each suite represents a cosmogenic moment in our Universe’s creation and evolution. Our fourth suite, the Alsos suite, is designed to bring life to the earth, and, thus, green tones are everywhere around, complementing ideally the view of pine trees seen from the balcony.
