Unique. One of a kind. Oddity. Acquired from the Philippines around 2005.  I was riding down a country road when I came across a funerary memorial/headstone maker living in a bamboo hut.   I saw this carving of the Virgin Mary and had to have it. It's carved from the frame of a house destroyed during the Mount Pinatubo eruption which destroyed many villages. The charred wood can still be observed beneath the whitewash.
