The cap of this Whale Calabash, as well as the mount, is fashioned from Kuri (Japanese chestnut wood); a symbol of mastery and strength, and so treasured in Japan that it was being cultivated before rice. The wood of the lower bowl, shank and fluke is strawberry, a wood of light weight and highly absorbent characteristics which seem made-to-order for a Calabash. As far as the relentlessly superlative grain? That's simply the natural outcome of a combination of Kovalev's ability to read grain, and a singular blasting process/machine - that isn't "etching". Another superlative presentation from Doc Kovalev.
