Ancient Kauri Triple Twist with Base
Size (mm) : 75 L x 185 H ; Base 50 W
Swamp kauri, sometimes marketed as "ancient kauri", are prehistoric kauri trees (Agathis australis), buried and preserved in peat up to 50,000 years ago in New Zealand's North Island. Buried under a peat swamp by an unexplained act of nature at the end of the last Ice Age, the trees have survived the centuries underground, sealed in a chemically balanced environment that has preserved the timber in almost perfect condition.
As each piece is individually carved colours do vary
These twists are popular as trophies and awards.
The Twist represents the path of life and is a symbol of the strong bond between love ones
