|Beautiful bamboo bangle, handmade with natural bamboo root. Lotus Arts de Vivre has cut a natural Bamboo root into a bangle and has decorated it with Amethysts, Citrines, Free Form Pearls and , mounted in Black Rhodium Silver.
This remarkable “Chinese Bamboo Tree” is different from most trees in that – while most trees grow steadily over a period of years, the Chinese bamboo tree doesn’t break through the ground for the first four years. Then, in the fifth year, an amazing thing happens – the tree begins to grow at an astonishing rate. In fact, in a period of just five weeks, a Chinese bamboo tree can grow to a height of 90 feet.
Lotus Arts de Vivre combines the organic shape of the bamboo and the root, and then skilled artisans carve them into pieces of decor and design. These labour intensive pieces are one of a kind works of art (no two pieces are similar) that have been put together by skilled craftsmen who have preserved the knowledge of traditional craft techniques.
Bamboo was in widespread use in early China as a medium for written documents. The earliest surviving examples of such documents, written in ink on string-bound bundles of bamboo strips date from the 5th Century BC during the Warring States period. Bamboo's long life makes it a Chinese symbol of uprightness, while in India it is a symbol of friendship.
This bangle takes almost 45 days to produce and is an exclusive design by Lotus Arts de Vivre.
