Asian Camphor Wood Trunk
This antique Chinese trunk was hand carved in very wide, solid camphor boards.  The deeply carved scenes of wild horses and anchient daily life in China stand out in exquisite detail. 


Asian Camphor Wood Trunk Lid
The top and the bottom of the trunk had severe splits running the length of both surfaces.  A new piece of wood was fitted into the bottom while the top was repaired with wood and epoxy.  After the repairs dried, they were carved to match the scene.  None of the cracks were visible after finishing.
