    Story Behind the Art:
    Nantana Sompamitre learnt her craft from her husband. 'We married when I was 23 years old. We realized that with his skill and mine, we could start our own workshop. He taught me and thanks to my crafting background, I learned quickly. Gradually more shops took an interest in our work and we soon began to sell more. We were very happy as we could see we had a bright future ahead of us. This is what I am proudest of in life. I never dared to dream of a day like this.'

    • Longevity Turtle

      Solid yet lightweight little turtle. The colors are a little bold for my tastes, so I gave it only 4 stars. My preference would of been for more calm colors, more natural looking. Just my preference, and it is a nice product.
