We are in amazement of Florentino Martinez's carving talents. This wonderful horn-playing Lizard is another superb example. Created from fossilized ivory, this lizard plays a lullaby to send you off to dreamland.  The amount of deatils packed into this tiny carving is incredible from the incised skin texture down to the inlaid turquoise jewelry. The little lizard measures about 1" tall, 5/8" wide by 3/4" deep and has inlaid eyes of jet.
