I've always said that I treasured nature, and that I'm an environmentalist. Still it was breathtaking. It was three metres long and one metre wide. The entire table was carved from the trunk of a rain tree, suar wood, as it is known, is beautiful and is rarely carved into objects larger than 75 centimetres, much less large enough to span the entire width of its trunk. Having this table in my dining room is certainly surreal, you see its sheer majesty, while knowing that it is a corpse of a living creature that indeed, was even more beautiful.
