“Tribute to Sequoyah”  One of a kind, sculptured art made from bristlecone pine.    This is a functional clock.  The 3, 6, 9 and 12 position are from the Cherokee numbering system developed along with the Cherokee written language by Sequoyah.  These 4 numbers are turquoise inlay.  I collected the wood at an extreme location in Colorado, at about 11,800 ft.   The wood is quite dense and the 1.25″ cut weighs 3.8 lbs.  The color is natural and the art is sealed to bring out the color.    The stump used for this piece was cut at the end of the 19th century (1880ish), when the tree was used for a nearby mining operation.  The tree was likely over 1,000  years old when it was cut.  140 years later, this tree has been brought back to life.  Clock requires one AA battery, and is ready to hang

Bristlecone Pine is the oldest living tree on earth and grows in extreme locations in the mountains of the southwest (to include where I live).  They grow about 1/100 of an inch in girth per year.   I do not collect living trees and consider Bristlecone as extremely rare.
