"Great Little Box!"

Combine a small wooden jewelry box with a beautifully crafted carved "Sea Turtle", add glorious, pure pastel shades painting the turtle shell and you have A Great Little Box! It sits on a shelf where I pass it a dozen or more times each day and it makes me happy every time I see it.

Gusti Ngurah is a true artist. Hope to collect all his turtles and small jewelry boxes as small rewards to myself. The details in his paint strokes are just incredible!
