African - Hippo Head Walking Stick, Cane, Staff
This beautifully hand crafted cane is made out of ironwood and comes from Zimbabwe.
The craftmanship is apparent in the intricate details of the beautifully carved head, of a Hippo.
Ironwood is a very hard dense wood, and comes from a tall to very tall tree, it is also known as the rock or small ironwood. The bark darkens with age and if damaged it bleeds a slimy black gum. It has very small white or red scented flowers.
The cane can be used for walking, after a rubber tip has been attached.
