Topic tags/keywords: plant holder mystery woodcarving plant plant stand

My aunt sent me pictures of this, she says it’s a plant holder of hers. I have not seen it in person, just wanted to share it with everyone as I think that it is fairly unique, at least I’ve never saw one (not that I’m an expert of any sort). I’m not sure if it’s from a single piece but it would be very impressive. I assume that it’s in the correct category of woodcarving?..

Gotta be a carving.

Obviously wood. Not sure how it’s built. Interesting though.

I saw them in Jamacia. It was the base of a collapsible chair. Maybe of African origin? Carved from a single log.

I saw little versions of this, used as a stand for coral pieces. Carved from a single piece of wood.

Looks like a good project for Roy Underhill to have on the Woodwright’s Shoppe ;-)
