This striking candlestick consists of three boldly colored woods: the deep orange chakte viga, blackwood, and the starkly white holly. It is hard to imagine that these are natural woods without any additional coloration. The twist is also special in that it combines a right and left hand deep V groove twist that produces a "pineapple" appearance.
