Additional Information: Dogwood trees symbolize life. The dogwood blossom that springs every Spring indicates the end of winter (death) and the beginning of a new life. Dogwood trees also represent joy and beauty that a new life or rebirth brings. The color white represents purity and innocence.  According to legend, Jesus was crucified on a cross that was made from a dogwood tree. The flower of the dogwood tree has four pedals, like the four posts of a cross, and the center of the flower resembles the crown of thorns. Occasionally, a dogwood tree would produce a burl which is a growth in which the grain is radically deformed because of some stress or damage and makes knots and swirly figure. This particular piece of dogwood burl has outrageous figure and bark inclusions that make for wonderful character.

The 6,000 Year Old Swamp Kauri was growing during the ice age when Woolly Mammoths were roaming and was buried by natural cataclysmic events. This Swamp Kauri is the oldest workable timber on Earth. The tree was discovered by a utility company which were preparing to install utility poles and they came across a huge Kauri tree buried in the ground in New Zealand. The tree was removed and pieces were sent for carbon-dating and these were determined to be around 6,000 years old. This particular piece of Swamp Kauri has nice swirly figure and provides a nice contrast to the Dogwood Burl.
