Description

The wood of ancient ships once bore the mission of harbouring life, the essence of the oceanis branded into them by the experience of ten to hundreds of years of vicissitudes. They bear witness to the passage of time with their indelibility and old fashioned simplicity. The artist harbours an immense awae and respect for nature. By fusing the art of lacquer crafting with the wood of ancient ships, the artist creates an original and unique language of lacquer art that has been hailed as "a revolutionary form of artistic expression".
