This piece is carved from a piece Solomon Island kerosene wood (cordia subcordata) with lively color variations. Showing two hawksbill turtles facing each other. 

In Hawaiian, turtles are called "honu". They hold a special place in Polynesian mythology. Because they live on land and also in the water, they are considered to be messengers between the human world and the spirit world.

This piece may be wall-mounted or displayed on a table or shelf.
