Parasite Wood Carving of Bats in Flight

Bats seemingly in flight, yet carved from solid wood. The animal wood carvings each have such personality and were elegantly handcrafted by a very talented carver talented in Bali from jempisis wood. The base and nest are carved from parasite which wood 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. The artist then gathers the burled branches for carving and used the unique shapes caused by the growth as inspiration for their carvings. Each carving is a unique work of art and has multiple pieces.
