Description
Turning turtle! Wreathed in a traditional Kashmiri design of painted gold leaves, a delightful Fair Trade turtle-shaped trinket box in a rich, royal blue. Simply lift off the ‘shell’ and the plain painted interior will hold a host of small treasures. In Hindu cosmology, the World Turtle Akupara supports the whole of creation on his back; while the turtle Kurma is venerated as an incarnation of Vishnu. Turtles are, thus, considered propitious creatures by some and this endearing character will add charm to any desk or dressing table. Handmade in Kashmir using traditional techniques; each may vary slightly.

Made exclusively for Culture Vulture.
