AFRICAN WOOD BOXES
Thuya Wood

The Thuya tree is a Coniferous mountain Cyprus tree indigenous to the Western Atlas mountains of North Africa. Its burl is a dense wood with a high oil content. Its color varies from rich golden brown to nearly black. This unique tree produces a large underground root with many outgrowths. The Greeks named it "Thuya" meaning sacrifice, because they used the oil distilled from it as incense in their religious ceremonies. Part of the root can be cut away to use for these crafts, which does not kill the tree. So this makes the meaning "sacrifice" apply to the tree itself which sacrifices a piece of itself for the sake of the artisans, and the root rejuvenates itself. Made by local craftsmen in a small coastal town called Essaouira in Morocco. The finish that's been applied is a hand rubbed shellac. 

We personally are addicted to these boxes. Not only is EVERY SINGLE ONE DIFFERENT, but the burl patterns, and the wonderful smell inside each box is wonderful and unique. "You can't buy just one!"

SNAKE BITE BOX

African burl Thuya wood- SNAKE BITE BOX!  (also known as the "Snake in box").  You have a mean streak, this one's for you - hand it to a friend, they innocently slide the top open and voila!  The snake pops up and "bites" their finger with his wooden tongue!  Endless fun...I hate to admit it, but teachers have bought it to torture their poor students.  The mischievous look of glee on a child's face when they open it ONCE is enough for a lifetime - their first thought is who to fool next! 

BOX-900

3-1/4" long x 1" wide x 2-1/4" tall

(7 available)

$36 ea.
