Modeled after a traditional netsuke - a small Japanese figurine usually tied to the sash of a kimono - this Turtle Netsuke makes a wonderful game piece, addition to a fairy or gnome garden, or little friend to keep you company on your desk. It also makes a great party favor, stocking stuffer, token of appreciation, or surprise for anyone who loves turtles.
Turtles represent self-containment, creative source, earthiness, being grounded, longevity, protection, shelter, and a steady approach to life. In dreams they are interpreted as patience, wisdom, or hiding something essential.
This Turtle is handcrafted in Middlebury VT from solid pewter.
Because each netsuke is made by hand, all dimensions are approximate. Subtle variations are natural.
- Measures 1/2 inches tall, 1 1/4 inches long, and 3/4 inches wide
