A water buffalo sculpture crafted with a fine artistic merge of burl wood and sterling silver. It symbolically grazed the ponds with sterling silver lotus leafs and frog that float on its surrounds.

The water buffalo is a cultural symbol of Thailand, as Thai farmers have used this animal to plow rice fields since ancient times. The number of Thai water buffaloes has fallen sharply since the introduction of tractors to help in rice farming.

Rolf von Bueren, an avid burl wood collector for over 40 years, personally travels to Japan to look for rare and beautiful pieces of burl woods – some that he keeps, some that he shares with his collector friends and Lotus Arts de Vivre designs. Burls result in a uniquely patterned wood, which is highly prized for its beauty. It is valued and sought after by artists, furniture makers and sculptors. The "wild grain" in the Burl makes the wood extremely dense and resistant to splitting, which made it valued for bowls, artifacts and sculptures, and is a popular wood in many auction houses across the world.

It took 2 months to finish this piece with as many as 6 designers and craftsmen involved at various stages.
