Here's another extraordinary Turtle tagua carving from the early 2100's. It is a land tortise.
This artist specializes in turtle carvings. He is really good, particularly with the painting. The artists use fine inks to paint tagua. I frequently take ink with me and we trade. The bargaining is fun. When I get low on one color or another they get a little nervous.
The carving is signed.
Tagua carvings are all one-of-a-kind treasures.
