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.

"Better than pictured"

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.

These boxes are adorable! The flowers are cute and well painted. Theyre perfect for storing rings or small earrings and they look great on the shelf.
