This is a large sculpture of super high grade Afghanistan Lapis Lazuli mounted in a Black Locust root wood base.
This Lapis was found in a display showcase in Peshawar Pakistan, it stood out there as an exceptional display piece. We had it shipped to the U.S. where we created a fine finished Black Locust base the mirrored its shape.
The wood for these piece is harvested in the mixed hardwood forests of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Being naturally durable to the elements these pieces are found dead in the forest, partly sculpted by the weathering of nature. after drying we carefully choose and compare stones with different wood pieces to find the ones that fit aesthetically. The the wood is cut, sculpted, ground, sanded and finally a finish is applied.
A wonderful centerpiece for any home adding a natural flowing beauty to wherever it is placed.
