Sukos is the Greek word for the sycamore wood that is the material used for this sculpture. The original, sycamore log was quarter cut, which is a milling process that results in the unusual and beautiful grain pattern that contributes to the outstanding aesthetics of this piece. The color of the sculpture is the natural color of sycamore wood and is finished with a multilayered, high gloss polyurethane coating.
The sculpture base is coral stone, an ancient ocean bottom that dates back 65-130 million years. Coral stone is now quarried in the southeastern United States and throughout the Caribbean.
