#515 Silk Worm Life Cycle on White Mulberry
Made from a gift of wood from an enthusiast of this particular wood, the theme was
a suggestion by this person. The leaves of the White Mulberry (Shimakuwa)
are the silk worms' food source.
This mulberry wood has a spectacular chatoyance. It is quite difficult to capture the flash
of the chatoyance in both the light and dark woods with photography.
