Art Wood carving handmade by Mariya


Material: boxwood
Measurements: 4.13" (10,5cm) tall by 1.85" (4.7cm) in diameter.
Shows one minutes.

Boxwood : Owing to its fine grain and iron strength it is a good wood for fine wood carving,
although this is limited by the small sizes available.
Owing to the relatively high density of the wood (it is one of the few woods that are denser than water)
boxwood is also used for high quality jewelry and parts for musical instruments.
The people say , that one gram boxwood as one gram of silver.
It does not rot, do not eat the pests.
But it is an expensive material, precisely because of these qualities.
It is also very hard and difficult for work, but then remained unchanged for centuries.

For making my work I use top quality materials, professionally prepared for work but never from felled tree alive!

This is completely original work from creating the project to its full completion,
Аll is hand carved by me, in my home by the use of various gouges and knives.
Sealed safe blend of beeswax and mineral oil,organic clean materials provide complete protection of the piece and its owner.
