Tigerwood, or Jobillo, grows in Mexico and Brazil, and is famous for the dark stripes that give it the name.
A light-colored wood (maple, here) is the most readable - and the Tigerwood will darken a bit over time making that even better. We used a tree-of-life design for the pointer, and the maple letters sit slightly proud of the clock face for dramatic effect. Sized to fit over your double door or window, he is 80" long (that's 7 1/2 feet), and 10" high.
Tavares will definitely be a conversation piece in your home!
