Description: This cabinet illustrates “Geolithic carving”, a term coined to describe deep, carving in wood surfaces which is reminiscent of the action of water on rock over millions of years. The doors and sides are 4” thick to support this carving. This genre of carving was originally debuted by me in the Swahili cabinets sold by Directional Furniture in the 1970’s. It was revived in this cabinet in 2008 and applied to many cabinet commissions, table pedestals and architectural applications since that date. The unit rests on the 4” high Plexiglas base and is outfitted internally with four adjustable shelves.
