Carved from Solomon Island kerosene wood (cordia subcordata), this piece has a warm brown tone with natural swirling black streaks. The carving depicts an octopus, two sharks, two dolphins, a seahorse, a turtle and various reef fish.
This tower is unusual because of the size of the elements and their nearly three-dimensional appearance.
