This horse comes in 2 versions and sizes; head up and “grazing” head down. The small horse is depicted in this photo. The large is approx. 8 inches long and 5 inches at the withers.
Len has developed a new and creative version of the desert tortoise. Lens` desert tortoise is inspired by her husbands Native American culture. It was believed by Native Americans that everything rode on the back of a turtle as we moved through the universe. This tortoise is raku fired in copper sand and decorated with beads, turquoise, feathers and has a felt bottom to protect the surface of whatever you choose to sit your tortoise on.
