Driftwood Museum

 The driftwood museum displays a unique collection of fine quality driftwood articles prepared through a rare and innovative modern art form. A huge collection of root sculptures of various shapes and designs can be seen at the museum. The articles kept in the museum are collected from the islands of the Bay of Bengal and hence the museum is named Bay Island Driftwood Museum.


Mrs. Raji Punnoose, a school teacher at Andaman & Nicobar archipelago during her tenure used to pick up pieces of driftwood deposited by the sea on the shores. These pieces comprised of twisted tree trunks, stumps, roots etc.  She used to clean, remove the crumbling parts and then scraped and trimmed the pieces to conform the shape she had in her mind. Many of the artistically designed pieces resemble birds, animals, reptiles, amphibians and fishes. Shaping, scraping, polishing, finishing and preserving were done with severe enthusiasm. The articles are made up of the materials normally considered waste which clearly shows the quality of imagination, creativity, originality of  thoughts of the artisans.
