Sculpted Turtle

Snakes & beads

"It's turtles all the way down" (D.H.)

Turtle Stack

11" x 8" x 5"

These turtle mbiras are carved from two pieces of wood, which are hollowed out and then laminated together to form the sound chamber. The head and body are then sculpted and finely finished and assembled for playing. The one shown is done with a piece of Cherry burl. (These are no longer available, sorry).
