A carved piece of rosewood that has been carved to look like a natural tree trunk with knot holes and ridges. The color is rich red and has a polished finish. Such a clever design by the artist.

A round chunk of tropical hardwood with a close tight grain and rich red color that has been hollowed out and carved to look like a piece of tree trunk. The underside show the tree rings. The outer surface has ridges and knot holes where branches had been. The base and mouth are flat surfaces. The mouth and interior are not perfectly round but show a naturalistic uneven shape. The outer surface has a nice shine and polish. The inside is polished, but is not as smooth as the outside. The piece has a nice heavy weight.
