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!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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.
