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.

"Wonderful"

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!

"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 bureau's once my spouse gets to open come Xmas. It's impressive how the painted design even flows down to cover the turtle's feet.

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!
