Our Lovely new Handcarved Chicken are proving to be very popular with our customers. They are hand carved by a family of master woodcarvers living high in the hills in Bali.
They are hand carved from sustainably grown albesia wood. Albesia wood is an incredible resource, in the tropics trees can grow to a height of 70 ft and a girth of 3 ft within 4 years of germination. It is soft, light and easy to carve and as it grows so quickly it is very sustainable.
Our Chickens are hand carved before being painted by hand then varnished with a matt varnish for protection. As they are hand carved and hand painted each chicken is slightly different, so you are getting a unique piece of art!
Our Chicken measures approx 33 cm tall by 16 cm wide.
In Indonesia where they are carved, to have a pair is considered lucky and every home should one!
