The Tortuous Passage

    Timber :  Budgeroo

This carving, which can be either free standing or wall mounted, is a gift to Dr Michael Bryant in appreciation of his kindness and skill as a neurosurgeon.

In August 2012, Guy underwent cervical spine fusion surgery to decompress the pinching of nerves that were causing immense pain radiating from his neck. For more information on this procedure, please click the link to Briz Brain & Spine
This curved Budgeroo branch with numerous gnarled burls was selected to represent the arthritis and general wear and tear of the spine.  The rugged exterior contrasts with the carved and finely sanded mahogany heart wood representing the polished surface of the new fused cervical vertebrae.
