Handcrafted lucky-charm turtle
Unpretentiously stunning, this Metal Dhokra Turtle is crafted out of clay core and then covered in a layer of wax composed of pure beeswax, resin from the tree Damara orientalis!
Dhokra Damar tribes are the traditional metalsmiths who believe in the creation of fine details using crafts from the earlier centuries.
The turtle is a sacred figure in native American symbolism as it represents Mother Earth. Carved with unique techniques and the art of ancient times, it signifies good health and long life!
- Dimensions: 3.5”x 1.5”
- Material: Brass
Caveat: Please allow for irregularities due to the distinct process of being hand-made from design to polish. Shades may vary due to photo-lighting.
