Carved from a single piece of Solomon Island rosewood (pterocarpus indicus). Excellent detail with mother of pearl inlay.
The carving has a set of legs carved in an entwined manner, which fold up for storage. The carved table may be hung flat on the wall for a stunning effect.
For the mother of pearl inlay, the artist cuts a piece of shell to fit the space, then cuts it into tiny pieces, files each one to create the pattern, and then puts each individual piece in place using custom putty.
