This truly one of a kind piece is dedicated to Japanese Maritime culture and the ancient spirituality of Japan. The polished driftwood which has such a unique shape was found on a beach in Japan about 30 years ago. Mounted between the two towering pillars of the driftwood is a genuine Japanese glass float dating back to the 1960s. On the wood base I burned onto it what in ancient Kanji Japanese it means “Spiritual Strength”. The mosaics on the base are actual beach sea glass that was collected from the beaches of Osaka, Japan. Also decorated on the base is the following; Ocean Jasper from Madagascar, a beach hag stone and sand dollar from Florida, sea shells from Florida, 40,000 year old sea shells from Oregon and two Shark tooth fossils (one Mako and one partial Megalodon) from Florida. The base has felt foot pads attached.
Approximate dimensions are 13 1/2 inches (43.3 cm) tall, 14 inches (35.5 cm) long and 11 inches (27.9 cm) wide
