Wounaan Indian Tagua Nut Turtle and Egg Carving-Panama 20111451L
Folks, here is a wonderful tagua turtle carving. It shows the turtle emerging from the egg. But what makes it special is the egg reveals some neat inclusions. Inclusions are discolorations that occur as the nut deteriorates before it is cut by the carver. Once the carving begins the deterioration ends. Tagua will last pretty much forever. It gets a little darker with age just as ivory does.
Yes, this is a neat carving and it is signed by the artist.
Every tagua carving is a one-of-a-kind treasure.
Shipping included within the USA.
