Parasite Carvings of Delicate Birds and Leaves

This bird couple is hand-carved from natural Jempinis wood, amongst leaves and a mushroom cap nest. The nest and base is a parasite burl that comes from a parasitic plant, a mushroom-like growth that imbeds itself into the bark of a Chinaberry tree and gets its nourishment from the tree’s sap. These dense and hard growths survive long after the tree rots and decays.

Approximately 11" H x 6" W
