Collectible Rhino Beetle Figurine
This tagua carving features the tropical rhino beetle; its color and marking details are hand painted using quality inks. Such tagua nut figurines are similar to that of ivory and often referred to as vegetable ivory; harvest of the tagua nut causes no harm to the rain forests thus providing a renewable resource for indigenous peoples.
