Carved Tagua Insect 0001

Leaf Cutter Ants Figurine

This collectible figurine features a remarkably fine rendering of a pair of leaf cutter ants with pieces of shells being carried vs a leaf. Both upper top and lower base of the carving shows the outer shell of the tagua nut, also known as vegetable ivory, from which the entire figurine is hand carved. Fine coloring detail hand applied using India inks. Leaf cutter ants are remarkable in both their single-minded focus and ability to carry large pieces of natural foliage in building colonies.
