Buddha Mask 25cm.
This classic Buddha Mask really catches the serenity of Buddhas peaceful image. It looks wonderful on any wall, and helps bring a relaxed atmosphere to any environment. Just glancing at this Buddha Mask can have a calming effect.
The mask is carved using Albesia wood. Albesia wood is a popular choice by the Indonesian wood carvers when making their handicrafts. The fast growing Albesia tree can be harvested after just four years with a diameter of 8"/20cm. This makes it easy to manage in sustainable plantations.

Teak Driftwood Clock (Design 1).
Approximately 35cm Height or Width.
Parasite Mushroom 4 Stem.
Approximate height 18cm.
Parasite wood carvings come from a parasitic plant, a mushroom-like growth that imbeds itself into the bark of the Chinaberry tree and gets its nourishment from the tree's sap. These parasite growths are so hard and dense that they do not decay when the tree is dead and rots away, leaving these parasite growths to be picked up and carved into beautiful creations by the talented Bali artisans.
Alternatively these parasitic growths can be cut away from the trees when they are still alive. If this is the case then not only do you get to own an exceptional piece of Bali's traditional art, but you are helping the islands ancient trees to live out a long and parasite free life.
Parasite wood is also known as Burlwood.

Tiki Mask 50cm (Set Of 4).
Tiki Masks are carved wooden masks that represent deities or gods from the Hawaiian and Polynesian Culture. They are used as home decor and they also serve various purposes such as warding off evil spirits and increasing the owners fertility! They hold such high significance in Polynesian culture that they, along with other Tiki sculptures, have become defining symbols of the Tiki culture.
Many of the Tiki Masks are designed based on the four main Gods. Kane is the God of sunlight, and natural life; Ku is the God of war; Lono is the God of peace, winds, rain sports and fertility; Kanaloa is the God of the ocean. Each Tiki God holds a different meaning.
Hand carved wooded Tiki sculptures are now evaluated and regarded on the same level of other forms of art and sculpture, with the benefit to their owners of being rich with meaning.
Beautiful hand carved masks and great conversation pieces.
