Draco is a collection of 30-meter-long chopping blocks in red cedar from the American West that defines the space while limiting visitors’ movement. 

This monumental sculpture comprises repeated modules of wooden beams crossing the room, generating a new perception of space. The work was presented for the first time at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels in 1979, where Andre exhibited a series of wood sculptures.
