Here's something different. A cutter ant that roams the landscape in Panama..
I remember these rascals from my childhood. They march on a path they have cleared and spend their time bringing leaf pieces to their hole in the ground. They are more red than this tagua shows but it still is a neat carving. The little rascals bite too.
This carving was made to serve as a scarf sleeve. Let me see you wearing it. Send me a photo.
I have bought tagua from South American, Africa and the South Pacific. But the very best carvers are in panama.
Tagua carvings are all one-of-a-kind treasures.
