Ginkgo Tree Wall Sculpture by Bovano of Cheshire
Add an unusual element to your décor with this Ginkgo Tree Wall Sculpture by Bovano of Cheshire. Reproduced from an original Bovano design, each piece is hand-enameled in their studios in Cheshire, Connecticut. Vitreous enamel (pulverized glass) is applied by hand, using a delicate sprinkling method layered over solid copper and then kiln fired. The result is a striking mix of copper-colored tree limbs and patina-finished ginkgo leaves.
This stylized ginkgo tree wall art represents a species of tree that dates back over 270 million years. Ginkgo trees are highly regarded in Buddhism and Confucianism, and as a result, are widely planted in Asia, particularly in China, Japan and Korea. Some specimens planted at Chinese temples are believed to be over 1,500 years old. While the ginkgo tree is believed to have medicinal properties, oddly, male trees are highly allergenic.
Rest assured, this beautiful copper ginkgo tree wall art is not likely to cause any sneezing. Bovano, a world leader in hand-crafted enameled sculptures is family-owned and operated and has been producing beautiful artwork like this ginkgo tree sculpture since 1952.
