Nyoman Karsa's exquisite craftsmanship is appreciated by my entire family. Turtles are also special to us, and the beautiful wood used in this functional sculpture has remained lovely over several years. I always return to look at Nyoman Karsa's work ....thank you!

I selected this turtle for its unique design and detailed carving. The artisan does incredible work to create such a fine sculpture. Novica ensured the turtle arrived safely and beautifully wrapped. This experience will prompt me to order additional items for my family and friends.

"Drunken Turtle!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The hand carved turtle wine holder is one of the best purchases I have ever made online. It is beyond wonderful. It is beautifully designed and carved and made of substantial and gorgeous wood. Nobody sits at our table without commenting on how clever and neat it looks holding a bottle of wine. It was given as a birthday present to my turtle loving spouse. He loved it. I am thrilled to be able to give him something he actually wants to keep and use! The personal communications from the artist were great fun, too. And, the packaging...also a work of art! Thanks so much for your creativity. You make the world a much better place. All the best to you!

This piece has such detail. How the artist was able to show so much detail is a mystery to me. Just beautiful. I definitely recommend buying from this artist. Magnificent work. Such warmth and peace just seems to spur from this piece. It is sure to put a joyful smile on your face.

"A wedding gift I cant wait to give!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

We purchased this as a wedding gift, and I opted for gift wrap because why not? They did not disappoint! I cannot wait to give this to my friends! My brother gave me this same carving as a gift, stating he got it from a world flea market in Oregon, and I looked everywhere to find it because of the meaning behind it. I will definitely purchase from NOVICA again, and appreciate the craftsmanship, artistry, and love that goes into each unique piece. Speedy shipping and great communication/customer service. A+!

"Many Meanings to This Statue"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I gave this as a gift to an artsy graduating senior (high school) with an explanation on how this can have several meanings when we look at it. Whether in deep thought, resting, praying, or any number of things, it reminds us of the powerful life lesson that we should not judge others. It is extremely well made. Do not let the missing connection at the back discourage you. That only adds to the mystery of the piece. It is well crafted and an amazing conversation piece.
