This unique wooden piece is hand-carved out of the high quality “Sarso” wood and finished off to a smooth polish in Hagaza village in Upper Egypt.
. It has been the most favored carving medium for Hagaza craftsmen many generations since the Ancient Egyptians. This craft flourished and developed into a variety of different stylistic products with the support and training provided during the 1980s by the French Jesuite monks “Petter and Franco” who had taken it upon them to revive this ancient art.
