Brosimum guianense is the true name for Snakewood, which is also commonly referred to as Letterwood or Amourette. This slow growing tree can only be found in Suriname, a South American country. It is one of the hardest (4th hardest) and heaviest woods on earth. This vase-like sculptural form is one of the largest objects you'll likely see made from a single peice of this wood. Stands 13 inches tall. AVAILABLE
