Original yellowheart wood carving of a turtle by Joan Kosel.
Carving dimensions are approximately 3 3/4" x 1 3/4" x 4 1/2".
Each carving is signed and numbered on the bottom by Joan. When she completed her first piece at age 13 she marked it on the bottom of the base as #1, her second as #2 and so on. The number on each piece indicates it's place out of all the carvings she has ever completed. The "Miniature Collection" is numbered in it's own series apart from Joan's regular carvings, and generally never exceed 6" in a ny dimension.
To dust, apply a light coat of lemon oil with a paint brush and wipe dry with a soft cloth.
