Look at this stunning Crocodile Wood Carved Buddha. This has been carved to a high standard, leaving the bark in place which creates a natural look. Here is an unusual item and makes a great conversation piece in any home.
Crocodile wood comes from a tree that grows up to 30 meters tall. It can have a diameter of 1 meter, and the wood is very pale in color. The tooth-shapes that protrude from the trunk give the wood its name. Crocodile Wood is also sometimes referred to as the Ivory of Woods because of the similarity of color and smooth finish. Crocodile wood is also interesting in that the heart is sometimes a stunning shade of purple.
This is a solid fair trade item hand carved into crocodile wood by a very skilled Bali craftsman.
