The original antique wheel would have been hand-carved from a single log, with the use of primitive tools. It has been mounted on a custom heavy duty steel base (painted black), that supports the weight and appearance of this large wheel.
This would have been used as a wheel for a wagon or cart throughout parts of Southeast Asia, until the advent of paved roads and the loss of the Water Buffalo as the beast of burden. It is a beautiful way to own a fascinating piece of history.
