Carved out of beautiful "Snokeling" (know in the West as Ebony), the most prized hardwood in Bali, Indonesia.
Lorenzo purchased this piece of Snokeling back in 1992, on one of his trips to Bali, thinking that one day he would become proficient enough in carving, to take on the challenge of sculpting in this extremely hard wood. After all, only the most experienced Master Carvers in Bali would even consider working in this medium. The time came 18 years later when inspired by the Flamenco Dancer theme, so after some sketches and a bit of sacrifice, this dark fiery gem was born.
