Name: The Original POSH Graffiti Old English 23cm Gold Wooden Letter J. EXPEDITED ITEM
Albizia wood, a fast growing and sustainable light weight wood which can be easily carved by hand. This makes it ideal for graffiti that needs to be attached to a wall.
Made by woodcarvers from the same Balinese rice farming community for over 20 years. The farming families use this important secondary craft business to sustain their agriculture and they cultivate fast growing albizia trees around their rice fields to provide the wood.
The Gold Wooden Letter J is carefully cut from a plank of sun dried wood and shaped and beveled by hand with a sharp knife. The wood is then sanded smooth and coated with a thin layer of plaster ready for gilding. The plaster is then painted with a sticky base coat onto which sheets of metal leaf are skillfully gilded.
