Details

This attractive little tortoise is hand-carved from native suar wood by Trisna Dewi. Inspired by traditional Balinese dancing as a young girl, Trisna loves creating musical instruments influenced by the music she grew up enjoying. A rod is included as part of the design, and can be used to create a fun cricket-like sound when rubbed against the shell as a percussion instrument.
