Hand carved from ebony and inspired by the stone spatulate tools found at the Ness of Brodgar. The ebony is a piece imported for the use of making fretboards for guitars and didn’t make the grade. Their loss is our gain. A stunning little piece that will create a lot of conversation and is extremely tactile. Prehistoric Age, Tactile, Archaeology, Ness, Guitars, Gain, Ebony, Conversation
