Inspired by ancient sacred animal from Chinese History, the “Imperial Guardian Lions” or the “Chinese Guardian Lions”, Lotus Arts de Vivre artists have designed a sculpture from free form Burl wood. They have accented the design with Sterling Silver head, face, tail and paws. Decorated with gold-leaf and the eyes are set with Tiger's eyes. Set on Black Granite Stand.
Rolf von Bueren, an avid burl wood collector for over 35 years, personally travels to Japan to look for rare and beautiful pieces of burl woods including this majestic piece. Burls result in a uniquely patterned wood, which is highly prized for its beauty. It is valued and sought after by artists, furniture makers and sculptors.
