Description: This pendant depicts a branch from an ancient cherry tree beginning to blossom in the moonlight. The Mayan bloodwood "bowl" was meticulously hand carved. Boxwood has been carved and pyrographed to display the tranquil scene. The branch is carved in very life-like detail, showing knots and tremendous three-dimensionality. The night sky is formed from pyrographed "flying fish roe". Fossil ivory is inlaid to create vivid cherry blossoms and the moon. The background, techniques and motif show the strongest evidence of Tom's experience with netsuke (small sculptural objects, or toggles, usually worn to suspend objects hung from the sash of the kimono).
The pendant measures approximately 1 3/4 inches across and is approximately 1/2 inch thick. It is accompanied by a 23 inch Irish linen cord with and elk antler closure.
