Animal: Flying Fox, Material: Pink Mussel Shell
This offering is sold.
Flying foxes are the largest of all Bats, some have wingspans of over 5 feet! They are vegetarian, feasting on fruit and plants. Because of this they are important pollinators. Jonas Hustito, son of carver Clive Hustito, chose a shimmering pink mussel shell to create this high flying fury friend. With incised ears, wings and soft fur this adorable carving is about 2 1/4" long and 1 3/8" wide with eyes of inlaid turquoise.
