Wounaan Embera Natural Stingray Tagua Nut Carving-Panama 20072707mm
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.
This is an interesting carving for several reasons. First, it is white or the natural color of tagua. It clearly shows why tagua is called vegetable ivory. Secondly, it is a vintage carving. I suppose I have had it for 25 years or more. I thought all these treasures had been sold but he was hiding in a box.
The artist did a wonderful job capturing the motion of the stingray's wings. He also did a fine job with the tail.
Every tagua carving is a one-of-a-kind treasure.
