Carved out of a single cocobolo piece of wood this crane perches on a branch, from which a single leaf sets, and dips his beak into the water.

Cocobolo is a dense rosewood, prized for its weight and beautiful lines. It is one of the main creative endeavors of many Wounaan men, who carve various animals first with a hatchet, and add finishes by hand.

This piece shows many of the natural elements of the carver, from notches on the side of the base to the natural colors of the wood.
