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.

It symbolizes a fine balance of mercy, elegance, and beauty along with the spirit of prosperity, abundance, good luck, and fertility. People who are born in the year of the rabbit are calm and peaceful.
