Tree of Life Panel


Our Sustainable Monkey Pod Wood with Eco Friendly Natural, Food-safe Livos Walnut Oil Finish Tree of Life Round on Uneven Boards is a 2 inch thick Wall Panel that displays the concept of a many branched tree illustrating the idea that all life on earth is related. The Banyan and the Peepal trees are both considered the Trees of Life. The Banyan symbolizes fertility; it is also referred to as the Tree of Immortality.

Each panel is hand carved – no two are alike. Craftspeople from the Chiang Mai area in Northern Thailand create these pieces with the simplest of tools. After each Monkey Pod wood (Acacia, Koa, Rain Tree grown for wood carving) piece is dried, carved and sanded by Thai artisans, it is rubbed in natural food-safe eco friendly Livos Walnut Oil that is polished to a water resistant and food safe matte finish. Color range is from medium to dark Walnut brown tones that will darken as the wood ages. These natural oils are translucent, so the wood grain detail is highlighted. There is no oily feel; and cannot bleed into carpets, as it contains natural lacs.

This piece is made from the branches of the Acacia tree in Thailand – where each branch is cut and carved to order (allowing the tree to continue growing). The wood is dried, carved and sanded by Thai artisans. We make minimal use of electric sanders in the finishing process. All products are dried in solar or propane kilns. No chemicals are used in the process, ever. This eco friendly piece is packaged with cartons from recycled cardboard with no plastic or other fillers.

The color and grain of your piece of Nature will be unique, and may include small checks or cracks that occur when the wood is dried. Sizes are approximate. Products could have visible marks from tools used, patches from small repairs, knot holes, natural inclusions or holes. There may be various separations or cracks on your piece when it arrives. There may be some slight variation in size, color, texture, and finish.
