Gently twining in gracious arabesques, grape vines proffer luscious clusters of fruit. Tay Nontawat creates a delightful relief panel of rain tree wood. The luxurious grape motif is known as chor a-ngun. Nontawat sculpts the airy piece by hand with knife and chisel, and he lets it dry thoroughly before applying a protective coat of lacquer. 17.3" H x 5.5" W x 1.0" D. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.

This beautiful piece is made by Tay Nontawat of  Thailand, "I still work quite a bit in the rice fields, but I also love working with wood. I enjoy it. I'm glad I have the chance to show my work through Novica. I hope people will love it."

I chose this for my review, I wanted something for our home. This will be a beautiful addition to add to our walls. I love the wood, the details and knowing it was hand crafted by a talented artist.
