This is a beautiful, twisted and finished bark beetle carving. The trails follow the twisted grain in almost a spiral pattern down the length of the piece. This authentic piece was cleaned, coated 3 times with tung oil (sanded between coats) and machine buffed to a beautiful rich luster. You can feel the richness of this twisted beauty when you hold it in your hands ; a therapeutic benefit you get from turning all bark beetle pieces in your palms. This is a willow piece that was reclaimed in the breath taking Rocky mountains and measures 18 inches long by @ 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
