This Hummingbird tagua figurine with Brown Wings has been handcarved in Ecuador from tagua nuts, a renewable rainforest seed known as vegetable ivory for its likeness to real animal ivory, but with animal and habitat-friendly properties. All colors are achieved using natural techniques, such as boiling, fermentation, burning and inlay, that enhance but don't completely cover the nut's organic beauty. Similar to animal ivory, this figurine will gently antique or darken over time.
- Measures 2-5/8” high x 2-7/8” wide x 2-1/4” deep
