Just visited my 94 year young Grandmother.She had this shipped home in the 60's. Says she remembers two little girls hand sanding the base, never saw the top being carved. Says it took 6 months to make.I can't believe the 3D carving, look at the tree branches and chains.Oiling became difficult for the Grandparents over the years as you can see the cracking. This is an accurate depiction of how they logged the forest. Have pics of my Grandfather riding an elephant while there.
Hope you enjoy.
