Hok-Hok art carving, inlaid with large piece of abalone

hand painted, hand carved, just stunning quality. The carving lines are close to perfect, the painting so maticoulos, Silas pays so much attention to details. Once you saw a few of his carvings, you can clearly recognize his style. He loves to use copper and dark brown colors or many of his carvings, but on this one, he used dark green, black, red and a light gray, just the perfect combination.
