Claudia Peina carved this sweet Turtle from antler and then inlaid turquoise on the deeply incised carapace. The eyes are inlaid pen shell, the claws and mouth are inlaid jet. From nose to tail it is about 2 1/2" and 2" wide. We love the sweet smile, it brings us joy. Claudia is the sister of well known carver Troy Sice.
