Sometimes shiny metal is not the right fit for your space, or maybe you want something to accent an outdoor area. This piece is perfect for both. Outdoors, it can be left year-round and indoors the coloring works well with natural décor themes.
Known as a 'living fossil', the Ginkgo biloba is one of the world's oldest living tree species: it was around 350 million years ago!
In Japanese culture, the ginkgo's distinctive fan-shaped leaf has carried meaningful symbolism. Along with its unique beauty, it has been a symbol of longevity (the tree can live for a thousand years) and of a more profound endurance (four ginkgos survived the blast at Hiroshima and are still growing today).
This decorative ginkgo brings all the beauty and symbolism into your very own hands and home.
TIP: Finished in a natural rust patina, it needs little special care. However, rust is a dynamic finish. If temperature/humidity fluctuates it can flake a bit. This does not mean it is falling apart, but it can get messy indoors. To reduce shedding, spray on a couple of light coats of clear lacquer such as Rustoleum to seal it, without adding high gloss.
