|A charming organic formation of Box Wood designed with a Sterling Silver Chimpanzee. The piece can be used as a sculpture as well as a low coffee table.
An integral material here is Box Wood, (i.e., buxus sempervirens) which is an evergreen, very slowly growing shrub or small tree. Some species of this family grow only 10 - 15 centimeters in diameter over a 100 year period. Owing to its fine grain, resistance to splitting and chipping, and it being denser than water, it is a good wood for carving, and thus useful for decorative pieces, arts and artifacts, often used for symbolic instruments and applications.
Chimpanzees symbolize healing, curiosity, playfulness and a powerful symbol of good luck. It represents a lighthearted version of oneself; it seeks to awaken one’s youthful and cheerful spirit.
After sourcing these extremely valuable organic formations of Box Wood, it took approximately 10 weeks labour to create this piece with over 8 designers and craftsmen involved.
