Parasite Wood Carving of Buzzing Bees

Carving a bee from wood takes a delicate hand, our extremely talented carver makes them look so alive! Bees buzz on top a burl balse 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 may differ slightly from piece to piece.

Approximately 5" H x 5" W
