Here is a beautiful Vessel. It is made from a very detailed piece of Ambrosia Maple. All the coloring in this piece are naturally made by an insect called the Ambrosia Beetle. They eat into the wood as it decays and the bacteria they bring in causes the markings to happen. This can de displayed as decorative wood piece of art or used as a cremation urn. Urns can be made in any size for you. A Rosewood Cabochon is provided to finish the top or can be sealed to keep the ashes in and protected. This has been hand polished to a satin finish.
