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.

I just received my Storyteller Hippo. It is as delightful in person as it is in the photos online. I am impressed with the beautiful artwork that makes this storyteller doll unique. I would love to order at least one more so that the hippo has company. Thanks for sharing your talent!


The ""Lotus Buddha"" came today, and I am beyond pleased! This piece has definitely exceeded my expectations. Thank you so much for creating such beautiful work!
