This is the last of my African wood. This one and my elephant both came out of a stack of fire wood I found in Malawi Africa. I fell in love with this piece of wood because of the wild color blotches it has. I wanted to make something with it…and the wife asked for a “Fruit” bowl to put on the table. Like the others…since the wood came from Africa…I stayed with a African theme. There is a Elephant looking at you from the bottom of the bowl…and when you flip it over…I carved the elephants back side or butt on the bottom…..around the bowl there is a lion, water buffalo, rhino and a leopard.
I thought it would be neat to carve all the way through…so things would stand out more…and while I like the way it turned out…it is a pain to dust according to my wife, lol.
