Capiz Hawksbill Turtle on Stand - 11" x 17"
Everything Nautical is proud to present the Hawksbill Turtle on Stand, part of our new Metal and Capiz Art Collection. A truly stunning addition to any room, this piece of 3 dimensional nautical artwork is ready to display and certain to make an impact. While the body of the Turtle is metal, the textured look is made with natural Capiz Shell, carefully mounted over the metal and enhanced with colors from the sea.
Similar in appearance to Mother of Pearl, Capiz Shell is coveted for its delicate appearance and natural luster. Capiz comes from the shell of the Placuna Placenta mollusk, nicknamed the Windowpane Oyster because of the glasslike quality of their shells. Traditionally harvested for their meat, fisherman have been reducing waste by reusing their shells for decor and handicrafts for centuries. As far back as the 1500s, Spanish settlers in the Philippines utilized these to create stained glass windows for churches.
This piece will help turn any space into a tropical paradise. It makes a great gift for the Ocean Lover in your life, no matter the occasion!
