Hand carved wooden fish sculpure on a metal stand.
This particular wood is harvested in South Africa mainly from farms and rural areas where they were used as fencing posts in the old days. In some of this artist's sculptures you can see ‘holes’ that were drilled so that the fencing wire could connect to each post. Wild olive is hard and dense. The artist loves working on these century old “posts” as they carry a lot of history. The wood has a unique and stunning buttery yellow, grey to olive green to finish.
