Wooly Butt Gum Tree, Northern Territory
This amazing burl was discovered in the far reaches of the Northern Territory, on a wooly Butt Gum tree.
Velvit was found on a fallen log. Which had been pushed over to make way for a four-wheel drive track. As the burl was carved an amazing red coloured appeared and various features revealed themselves.
Burls are normally formed by a virus fasciation, which causes radical cell distortion and the crazy grain.
Velvit is a one of a kind sculpture, which has been hand carved to accentuate its natural shape and finished with a clear oil to bring out its natural colour.
The tree will live forever in this stand-alone piece. Please respect, love and enjoy its beauty.
