Snake Paperweight made from Wood and Silver and covered with Galuchat.
An ideal decorative item for the desk or coffee table, makes a perfect birthday gift.
The Chinese zodiac consists of a 12 year cycle where each year has been named after a different animal, each of which embodies distinctive attributes and characteristics. Each of these balls -- made from teakwood covered with galuchat with the head, feet and tail crafted from Sterling silver – represents one of the 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac.
The significance of this piece comes in the form of its raw material, Galuchat, the world’s toughest leather. Before electricity or machines for cutting were invented, stingray leather was very difficult to work with. Thus it remained highly dependent on the artisan’s skill, which Lotus Arts de Vivre’s craftsmen have duly mastered.
Embellishing Galuchat with sterling silver requires precision work which adds the touch of luxury, and romance evident in all Lotus Arts de Vivre creations. This majestic piece makes an eye-catching decorative item for the desk.
