    The wood glows in the light

    I purchased this as a gift and was thinking of staining it in a batik print. But the piece is too beautiful to change. The carving is lovely, including the belly and underside of the tail. The crocodile wood is something like maple and the finish is like satin. I didn?t expect so much. The gift wrapping is also a special touch that we are keeping.
