Armando Torres Cubillas was always considered the premier turtle carver. He carved all kinds of turtles including the Green Sea, the Ridley, and less often the Leatherback, perhaps due to the Leatherback’s “sacred qualities.” When a Leatherback was captured, a four-day ceremony ensued after which this giant turtle was released unharmed.

5-1/2" long, 3-1/4" wide.
