While touring Indonesia, we came upon these finely carved posts which were mortised for the framework of a new home.
The diligence and patience to produce these trim pieces for soffits tells me a lot about the character of these craftsmen. The paneling pictured here is ordinary in Indonesia. CNC? What’s’ that?
The chunk of ebony was my treasure find.

Fantastic carvings! I’m impressed. It must have taken longer to do the carvings than to build the entire building.
