Tau Wood - The rarest of all the woods that Pitcairn Islands carvings could be made from. Tau can take many many years to grow to a size of which it was gain its blackish colored wood. Tau is a very black, oily & hard wood. For a carver to use a Tau tree that he/she planted they would have had to plant it at a very young age and would only be able to harvest it in the elderly years to get the black color. It is a very special wood. 

With a metal eye screwed into the back of the carving, you can hang it anywhere in your home. All you need is a nail or a screw. This carving is also signed by the very hands of the carver. A 8th Generation of Fletcher Christian, Mutiny on the Bounty. You wouldn't get a more authentic Pitcairn Island carving than this.
