Here's a Classic Toucan Bird tagua carving from the early 1990's.
What makes this carving unusual is the artist "shaved" the outer covering of the base nut. So the Toucan appears to be resting on a chunk of ivory. COOL!
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.
