About the Olive Wood
Olive wood is a beautiful wood with grains of colors ranging from cream through pink to black. Olive trees are cut down only when they can not be harvested any longer. Most olive wood carvings come from the trimmings, an essential process to further the healthy proper growth of the trees. It was a branch of olive tree that was given as first prize to the winners of the Olympic Games, symbolizing wisdom, will and virtue. Attached to the history and religion of Greece for more than 3000 years, the olive tree is part of the mythos of Greece, the legendary land. All olive wood products are hand carved from olive wood and can be fully utilized, as olive tree wood is renowned for its durability, an inherent trait due to the wood's high density of 92%.
