Teak root bowl carved from a single piece of Teak and decorated with a Sterling Silver  Tiger.

The teak root has been sourced from the finest teak plantations in Java, Indonesia,  which is known to have the ideal conditions for high grade Teak quality. Teak is the  common name for the tropical hardwood tree species Tectona grandis and its wood  products, native to South and Southeast Asia. It is known for its incredible durability  and water resistance. Teak has a high oil content, giving it the highest decay-resistance  among all-natural wood products. Due to its durability, while it is still used for boat  building, yachts, exterior construction, indoor and outdoor furniture, it also very dear  to artists and sculptors for making intricate carvings and elaborate sculptures. Lotus  Arts de Vivre uses various free-formations of the teak branches, teak root or driftwood  to further hand-carve and create its designs, giving wood a second life.

As a spirit animal, the meaning for the tiger is said to be total willpower, courage, and  personal strength. Some recognize tigers and dragons as powerful symbols  representing the balanced forces of yin and yang. The Chinese god of wealth, Tsai Shen  Yeh, is often shown sitting on top of a tiger to emphasize his power. In Chinese culture,  tigers are seen as the guardian of children.

This piece took approximately 2 months to finish, with over 5 craftsmen and designers  involved.
