About this piece

I had to cut up a $7,500 marri wood floor with a circular saw, on my hands and knees, a few years ago. I brought home as much of the pieces as I could as it was too beautiful to throw away. The pile sat on an old water tank lid in the weather for a few years before the inspiration came to use some of it to create 'Bote', a stylised rendition of an ancient Phoenician battle ship. I carved out the outlines of the image with a gemmil tool and then filled it with grated charcoal mixed with beeswax medium. Woodstain and oil paint were added, and to finish it off, some rough rope with a rusty, old shackle I found on the beach. It is mounted on a piece of 12mm marine ply.
