Leave no one behind / Ski Pole

Leave no one behind
Leave no one behind

"Leave no one behind" Ski Pole was designed for the outdoor skier who is in an emergency.
A true story of a couple of a mother and daughter has inspired and influenced this piece. Because of the heavy blizzard,
the visibility at that time was not good enough so the rescue team was not able to see them.
Finally the mother cut her artery and let the blood flow on the snow.

"Leave no one behind" Ski Pole stores 1500CC liquid pigment which can colour 10m2 snow.
If the ski pole user is in an emergency, they will be easily found by the rescue team after pressing the button on the pole.
