The Wounaan tagua carvers are some of the best tagua carvers in the world. We have been buying and selling their tagua carvings for more than 25 years.

Here you have another vintage  carving. I suspect I have had this gator carving for 25 years or more. When I came across this box of old carvings it was like finding some old friends.  

There are a couple of things to point out here. Number one is that this is probably a caiman because that is what we have in Panama. Number two is the power of photography. See the small dabs of red ink on the left front leg? Well, they are barely visible on the carving. They were a surprise to me. And lastly, the red mouth. The artist must have had this gator finishing off his meal.
