Here a genuine Lignum Vitae crotch sculpture. It was highly polished and then I applied a dark brown paste wax finish in order to enhance the inherent beauty of the wood… Approximate size in its biggest points: 16” long X 9” high X 8” wide….14 pounds!!
It has a West Indian Satinwood sphere… inlayed with Turquoise.
This ball is 2-3/4” diameter…

Thanks for looking,
