Photo is of typical lime carver's blocks.

Lime is widely considered the best wood for woodcarving.  The wood is smooth textured and a bland off white colour showing the detail of the carving especially well.  It cuts with minimal effort under a sharp gouge or chisel leaving a smooth almost polished surface.
