This is one of the few things that I was able to salvage from a barn fire. Lighting struck, and the barn burned to the ground. No animals or humans were harmed. It was contained to only the barn. It melted most of everything, yet this survived and is very neat looking from the fire. Very unique texture and patterns formed from that very fire. This is the only one in existence that looks like this. This is not light, but not super heavy either. This will need to be hung with care. This has been sealed to preserve its beauty.
