"Not The Smell of Napalm" is a replica of foliage found in the jungle of Bataan by the beach. Suggestive of a fossil, the carved leaves embody the perseverance contained in the memory of the land itself. Napalm was used extensively by the United States against entrenched Japanese forces in the Philippines during WWII, and became a central weapon of the U.S. military during the Vietnam War. Reports state that roughly 388,000 tons of American napalm bombs were dropped in the region between 1963 and 1973. In addition to its devastating effects on human targets and civilian bystanders alike, napalm bombs could create firestorms that burned through acres of jungle in a matter of seconds, leaving a defoliated landscape in its wake.
