Details

The flaming coils of a golden dragon spread out over the sky-colored shell and flippers of a humble turtle in this unique jewelry box. Made from crocodile wood, the turtle peers upwards from under Gusti Ngurah Semarajaya's hand-painted dragon. Removing the top of the shell reveals a space lined in black polyester velvet for storing small valuables or jewelry.

"A decorative item that dazzles!"

Not only is this turtle box incredibly structured, the art work on it is carefully done and exceptionally beautiful. It will look fantastic on one of our bureaus once my spouse gets to open come Xmas. Its impressive how the painted design even flows down to cover the turtles feet.

I love this. Lovely carving, and painting. Soft colors. Looks and feels like a real turtle, dragging its legs along. Nice wood that begs to be touched. You will not believe how beautifully this piece comes wrapped--that is an art in itself!

Very well made. I wanted these to hang on the wall but they come attached to a stand. Nevertheless, they are beautiful on display and beautifully made.
