TREE TRUNK CARVING

This is very distinctive piece as it may not be available so easily anywhere. The process behind this exquisite trunk carving is rather difficult, long and time consuming. After having procured a suitable trunk of a good tree, the center is carefully made hollow by a slow burning of charcoal, thereby the wood giving way all the way down as the charcoal burns. Once this is accomplished, the trunk is left to cool down and dried before the carving is commenced.

This rarity is large enough for the artist to carve three distinctive faces to it. Lord Ganesha is carved on all three faces with different poses; one is a "Tandava" pose, the second is a dancing pose and in the third he is shown as playing a flute. Besides the three Ganeshas is the decorative ornamentation carved out all around the trunk making this trunk a masterpiece that can never be duplicated.
