TURTLE EYES


TURTLE EYE

In the afternoon the sun lights up this whimsical wooden turtle and his buddy the tiger.  They never fail to make me smile.  Made in Indonesia, these fellows bring the spirit of some local craftsman from half way around the world to me everyday.  Now days it is easy and inexpensive to purchase art and craft work of all kinds made by people from all over the world.  This is not the kind of work bought for investment or in order to show you are up on the latest art movement.  It is simply fun to look at and a way to get a small part of another culture into your life.
