Rendered by lathe and carving tools, common and exotic woods are transformed into nearly 100 complex sculptural forms with alluring surfaces and textures. Massachusetts collectors Robert M. and Lillian Montalto Bohlen have assembled this premier collection of contemporary wood art that is international in scope and diverse in form. Experience the beauty, sensuality and sculptural qualities of wood.
