Spectacular large tortoise by Oaxaca's Casa Don Juan. Artist Juan Hernandez Cruz from Oaxaca started decades ago the tradition of creating fine quality Oaxacan woodcarvings; he was one of the first persons to create Oaxacan woodcarvings. In his honor, his family has continued with his legacy and sign all their pieces "Casa Don Juan" Don Juan's Home. This amazing turtle has such a gorgeous form. Take a look at its raised, carved conch. The painting is absolute perfection. This is one of the most beautiful turtle woodcarvings I have ever seen!
Louis Vuitton just chose Casa Don Juan for its extraordinary quality to collaborate with them on a special, limited collection that will include their pieces on LV's products.
