Olive wood is a beautiful wood with grains of color ranging from subtle cream to pink to black. Olive trees are cut down only when they can not be harvested any longer. Most olive wood carvings come from the trimmings which is an essential process to healthy and proper growth of the trees. Olives, olive branches and olive oil hold significant meaning through out history including wisdom and virtue in the Olympiads and mercy and protection in the sacrament of Baptism.
