Wounaan Indian Tagua Nut Turtle Carving-Panama 20123032L
This is an exceptional carving. What the artist did was finish the carving and then he dunked it in a cocobolo dye that his wife cooks up for her basket fiber. It turned the whole carving the reddish brown color and then he etched out the areas that allow the white to show through. Neat trick.
Every tagua carving is a one-of-a-kind treasure.
