carving tool

solomon islands

The west is renound for their skills in wood carving.
It is astounding what the men create. The wood they use
comes from the rainforest: queen ebony, king ebony,
rosewood, kerosine wood, even coconut. Finding the wood
is the easy part by comparison, carving tools are a rare
thing to come by. Here, I took a photo of a particular tool
this carver was in need of while his son looked on.

other sizes: small medium original
