Ambrosia Serving Board

105.00

Long handle with hole for hanging on display. Beautiful, streaky grain details and imperfections, different on either side...the patterns left by busy beetle gardeners. The colourful streaking patterns in ambrosia maple are the marks of ambrosia beetles, who have a symbiotic relationship with fungi. They dig tunnels into dying trees and use them as the growing medium for cultivating fungal gardens. After they have harvested their crop and moved on to other trees, the marks and furrows in their abandoned fields remain. Amazing! 

Board measures 15.5" long including handle, and 6" wide.
