Elephant Feet …
Hand-carved from Mango Hardwood this Elephant Stool is totally bespoke to you and carved to a design that’s pretty and functional at the same time.
Mango Hardwood is Eco-friendly …
The Mango Trees used are only harvested and cut at the end of their useful, fruit-bearing life and plantations of these are abundant across Indonesia making them perfect for hand-carved garden ornaments and furniture for use both at home and abroad.
The look and feel of the wood is another factor that contributes to this suitability as well. This timber contains Spalting and this is what gives it such an array of colours that can’t fail to catch the eye.
You can quite clearly see the darker brown colour of the heartwood compared to the lighter almost yellow coloured timber that surrounds it in this elephant carving.
Another unique quality with this ornamental brand of furniture …
Animals, especially Elephants and Birds of Paradise are a popular theme with crafts-people across Indonesia and they produce some fabulous designs of which this Elephant Stool is a great example.
However, practicality is also a focus of their designs, hence the elephant trunks that double up as legs, as well as lending aesthetic appeal to the whole.
The rounded top is simple, smooth and perfectly rounded – which is an achievement in itself. And the detail in the elephant carvings captures that life-like quality exactly.
In fact, it could just as easily be used as a table as well as a stool …

Please note that movement such as small cracks in the surface of your furniture is normal and part of the nature of the wood.
