Tagua Nut Dog Carving
This dog carving is so cute! This dog is carved from reconstituted tagua nut (otherwise known as ivory nut for its ability to replace real ivory as a sustainable carving material). It is approximately 6.5cm tall and weighs approximately 60g. This listing is for one (1) dog. The one you receive may or may not be the exact one pictured.
Vegetable ivory or tagua nut is a product made from the very hard white endosperm of the seeds of certain palm trees. It's known as the “vegan ivory” because it is a sustainable (and humane) carving alternative to real ivory.
The dog symbolizes many things, including unconditional love, loyalty, steadfastness, protection, kindness, and devotion. The dog is also the eleventh animal in the Chinese zodiac, so those who are born in certain years are born in the year of the dog.
Please see the pictures and/or video of each listing to view the item's condition. Please note that due to the nature of crystals/stones, each one may have slight imperfections, including on carved pieces.
