This carving was done by Levi Chuecarama. He has been a fine tagua carver for many years. I guess I have been buying his carvings for nearly 25 years.
In the early days Levi was studying to be a Medical Technician. So I would buy his carvings so he could meet his expenses. But in those days these turtle pendants were all he’d do. Yes, he became an expert but I wound up with bags full. I hope I live long enough to sell them all.
He graduated and works in a lab now but every now and then when he hears I’m in Panama he’ll come say hi and sell me some of his latest creations.

Every tagua carving is a one-of-a-kind treasure.
