The statue of a Happy Buddha sitting on a Turtle signifies happiness, good luck and fortune. The Turtle sitting on a bed of coins and gold ingots is a distinct sign of wealth and prosperity.
Made from Tagua Nut which is also known as Vegetable Ivory - an awesome ethical alternative used by Fair Trade Artisans. Each palm-like tree can produce 10kg of nuts each year, harvesting these nuts does not disturb the tree’s reproduction, making Tagua Nut an ecologically sound resource as well.
In this instance the Tagua Nut has been sundried, powdered, stabilised and cold pressed into this intricate statue. It is cool to the touch and has a medium weight.
Measures approx 11cm x 11cm x 7.5cm
