Hand Carved Bamboo Root Figurine
Made from hand carved bamboo root, this carefully crafted statue features a smiling old man holding a big fish. This is a famous Chinese character known as Jiang Taigong. He was, as legend has it, a nobleman who helped advise the Kings who went on to form the Zhou dynasty. His hat, beard and clothing are given extra texture with the special shredding technique used by the Chinese craftspeople.
Tips for installing outside: To keep the colour, detail and finish of this carving when using outside we recommend the use of a clear wood preservative. Varnish or wood stain can be used in the future to further enhance and preserve the bamboo.
PLEASE NOTE: The diameter stated is measured at the widest end of the cane. Due to the way in which bamboo is grown and cut, it is normal for the canes to taper; whilst most canes will only taper down by a few millimetres, they can taper up to 60% in extreme cases. Each pole is expected to be within +/-20% of the range diameter it is sold in. Bamboo is a natural product and is subject to cracking, splitting & discolouration, none of which will affect its structural properties
