A beauteous organic formation of Box Wood designed into a low table with a Sterling Silver Dragon. The piece can be used 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.

Dragons traditionally symbolize potent and auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, typhoons, and floods. The dragon is also a symbol of power, strength, and good luck for people who are worthy of it in East Asian culture. The Dragon is also the fifth of the 12 Chinese zodiac animals. The Year of the Dragon is associated with the Earthly Branch symbol 辰, pronounced chen.

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.
