Story Behind the Art: Rootwork items are carved from a species of Chinese Fir called Shan Mu, which grows abundantly in the mountains of Central China. Rootwork raw materials come from stumps left by logging operations, the removal of which allows faster re-growth of newly planted seedlings. Each gnarled stump is then transformed by skilled artisans into the gorgeous pieces.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
First off, it was delivered quicker than expected, so that was good, I was afraid it would be damaged because I'm sure the UPS guy threw the box over the fence, (there's no FRAGILE on it anywhere), but to my relief, it was perfectly fine. Smell was strong, but it was pleasant. My husband, who's a finish carpenter and really knows his 'woods' was even impressed. I got a nice and knotty one. =) It's heavier than expected, I intended it for a pot shelf, but it's probably too heavy for it. I'm getting another one. You wont be disappointed.
Have bought both the large and the medium of these and make lamps out of them. Where ever they are put people are intrigued. Usually though when we buy the two together it seems one of them has really great decoration and the other is o.k. They still make wonderful lamps and are so easy to convert.
Beautiful art work type piece. As soon as someone walks in they are drawn to it. I keep the little card that comes with it below it to explain its origin. It was worth the extra time (usu orders arrive within 48 hrs or less when I use Overstock) to get this time. I am extremely pleased and the cost is extremely reasonable considering the size and how heavy this piece is. It is has a hollow space which is about 12 inches deep and about 3inches in circumference is you wanted to add anything(like artificial flowers) but there was no need to do this because of its beauty.
This urn exceeded my expectations. It is just gorgeous -- my only problem is to figure out the best location for it (it looks great in many locations). The box it came in looked like it had been used a few times in the past and was starting to feel wet and limp. It was well packed on the inside, though.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Gorgeous
Thank you for shopping with us scapegoat7483. The volume varies from piece to piece because they are hand carved. I cannot easily provide that information. The urn is not intended to be used to hold water or anything else other than dried flowers or the like. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 1, 2013
