This exceptional and large rhino carving made from pure ebony wood is love at first sight. Its lustrous beauty evokes the feeling of luxury, of old worlds and empires, of the confluence of art and the wild.
Ebony carvings are noted for their smooth finish and sheen, and you savor a unique pleasure as your hands glide over and caress this luxurious, artistic creation from an African master sculptor.
A black hardwood native to Africa and Asia, ebony is prized for its rich, distinctive interlaced brown and mostly black grain. Its denseness allows it to be finely sculpted with detailed features, and it shines uniquely when polished and rubbed.
We at Exquisiti continue to promote the preservation of traditional handmade works of art from natural sources. Ebony was once widespread but is now increasingly rare and needs sustainable harvesting.
