Small Hand Carved Wooden Dolphin on Parasite Wood Base
Each wood carving is hand carved from parasite wood, parasite wood comes from the branches of the Jampinis Tree. The branches of the tree become infected with a parasite, but this creates an unusual burl like formation in the wood. The wood carver then cuts of the burl and uses them to create unusual carvings.
Parasite carvings are often collected to create an eye catching unusual display in any home environment and they make wonderful unusual and ethical gift ideas for someone special for a wide range of occasions throughout the year.
