Imagine Michael Coble's magnificent alabaster Turtle
or tortoise resting on your table or desk. Its serene presence and beautifully detailed carapace is quite engaging. A turned head has expressive eyes from turquoise, and a sweetly etched tail, legs and claws are given. In Zuni Pueblo, turtle shells are prized for making rattles used by the Rain Dancers. About 5" long, 3 1/4" wide and 1 1/2" tall.
