Honduran rosewood burl is a planetary legacy, one of the rarest, most valuable, and most collectible woods in the world. This one-of-a-kind HRB creation represents the heavenly after-life of a tree, a breathtaking reincarnation of natural living beauty. It was lovingly hand-carved and hand-buffed in keeping with Old World tradition, without any computerization or chemical finishes. The raw rosewood is legally imported by the artist, who is licensed and permitted under USDA/APHIS regulation, and approved by C.I.T.E.S. as an environmentally-friendly enterprise.
