This beautiful carving on a coconut is another creation of Reji Navasree (see: A village artist). Coconut husk is a difficult medium to carve on. First of all there is the tough outer skin. Then there are the fiber and the pith. But Reji has done a fine job, delicately cutting through them to produce this piece. Unfortunately it doesn’t last for more than a day or two. Ideally this work is good to decorate a party table.
