Hand Carved wooden Turtles, swimming and protecting their nest of eggs.
Carved from burl wood.
A burl is a tree growth in which the grain has grown in a deformed manner. Usually they are found on the bottom of the tree by the trunk or in the roots growing underground. Burls result in uniquely patterned wood and that wood is highly sought after because of its beauty.
When working with burl wood, no two pieces are exactly alike.
Purchase a nice little trinket or a unique gift for someone.
