Hand-carved by the Ifugao in the mountains of Northern Luzon. Smooth & weighty to hold. Made with Kamagong wood—native to the Philippines, extremely dense, and one of our hardest local woods. It is a tough wood to carve, but worth it; these will last a lifetime! Each piece varies. Finished with a food-safe oil.
Woodcarving in the region dates back to the 1500s. Home to the famous Banawe Rice Terraces, woodcarving was primarily used to make “bul-uls”, which served as protection/ritualistic objects connected to the rice harvesting cycle.
