"I enjoy carving objects with manual tools such as chisels, hand-saws and mallets," explains Balinese artisan Sarwaedi, who creates this stunningly realistic tortoise from native suar wood. Handsome and functional, the hand carved wood catchall is perfect for holding your small items and keepsakes at your desk, coffee table, or night stand. The name kura kura comes from the Malay word for 'tortoise.'
