Details

This cheerful baby elephant lifts up its trunk in celebration and smiles endearingly. Nantana Sompamitre hand-carves the statuette from local mango wood and paints florid hearts on the tip of the trunk, the back and front. The statuette receives several coats of lacquer, which Sompamitre prepares from the Gluta usitata tree and ashes of burnt rice paddy husks. The tusks are made of plastic.

Carol

A lot of work was involved in this from carving the mango wood, crushing different tones of eggshells and applying them in a pattern and then the lacquer and sanding after to make a gorgeous vase! It proudly sits in my living room, and reminds me of the dark night skies over Haiti, where they also like mangos. Nice work , Nantana!
