Description

Double Iguanas

Vegetable ivory is a term referred to that of the tagua nut, an edible fruit of certain species of palm trees.  The ability to carve and paint this natural product is similar to the finished product of carved ivory from animal tusks.  This exceptional carving features a large, highly detailed bushmaster viper coiled and ready to strike. To create such a piece from tagua nut is truly a sculptural feat rarely achieved; a true collector piece.
