Details

Wise and poised, this owl looks out upon with a secret in its heart. When its head is lifted, its body reveals a secret compartment. Nantana Sompamitre designs this box with a tinge of complicity and magnificent artistry. She carves the owl from mango wood using manual tools to achieve an exceptionally detailed piece. Painted by hand, the owl receives several coats of lacquer, which Sompamitre prepares from the Gluta usitata tree and ashes of burnt rice paddy husks.

I was a little concerned that this might be too ?cute,? but it isn?t. It?s exotic and strange in the way birds are strange. Colors are more vibrant too. Beautiful and detailed from every angle.

Unfortunately it is too small for the purpose I had envisioned. I will use it for a different purpose and it will continue to be loved and will sit among my other favorite items on display.

These boxes are really beautiful and easy to fit in any decor. I use them to put rings, earrings, and pills on my bedside table. I liked them so much that I bought an extra set for a fried who also loved them. The boxes are very lightweight and beautifully crafted.
