The deep-rooted tradition of wood-carving still thrives in the Solomon Islands. A skill passed down from generation to generation, the carvers give great thought and consideration to the type of wood and shell they will use as well as design. Commonly-used wood includes Ebony, Rosewood, Kou or Kerosene Wood, pale sapwood or dark hardwood while Mother of Pearl or nautilus shell are used for the inlay.
