About Parasite Wood
The China-berry tree is a tree that grows in Indonesia. This type of tree host a natural fungus or mushroom that causes the wood to swell & burst to form these mushroom like growths. The branches die and fall off the living tree. The carvers then gather the oddly shaped branches from the forest floor, treat them to neutralize the fungus, and carve them into these imaginative works of art!
