Ancient Kauri Mushroom

Made from Ancient Kauri from New Zealand,  preserved wood in peat bogs,  
this wood was certified by the supplier by carbon-dating to be in excess of 40,000 years old.
It has a surreal irridescence, and the mystical aura that anything organic so old inspires.
Turned in a mushroom shape, finished in hand-rubbed polyurethane
 with setscrew retention  in a brass mounting collet for a BMW shift lever,
with a 5-speed dogleg pattern insert.

85mm tall,  51mm wide

Item #306                                    $125
