Shindai Sugi |Japanese Scared Wood|

This tree post is incredible! It was found between Akita-ken and yamagata-ken prefectures 2000 years ago and was buried 10/15 meters under the ground for 200 years and covered by black earth. The color is unique to this species of tree and after being buried for so long it develops a chocolate color. It is very rare given it has very limited injuries and blemishes.
