Ancient Kauri Wood Small Smooth Bowl
Wayne Ross Swamp Kauri Carvings
Digging Up The Past
Some 5000 years ago an earthquake or major volcanic eruption felled the Kauri kingdom, in the forests of the Waikato. These once giants of trees came to rest in the peat of the Waikato and have remained preserved, for thousands of years......until recently
Near Huntly in the Waikato (North Island, NZ) they were reawakened from their long lie in, to see the daylight of their future.
This beautiful Small Smooth bowl makes a perfect gift for someone who has everything! Use if as a nut bowl or simply a stunning show piece. It's natural grains and colours are enhanced with a polished finish. The Kauri used to make this bowl is estimated to be 4,000 years old.
