When volcanoes gasp awake from their slumber, their guardians are born. Magnus the magma tortoise rose from the breathing mountain.


This is a handmade, one-of-a-kind gourd sculpture. It's made from a 3 locally grown gourds, wire, and epoxy clay with custom cabochon eyes. Every scale, wrinkle, and detail was hand sculpted to make this piece unique. It's also hand painted with acrylics and sealed with water resistant sealers.

Gourd Turtle #HR19 is "Magnus", the fantasy Magma Tortoise. He was born from the lava itself, crawling from the bubbling liquid as it crawled down the volcano. Its soft portions seem to glow, while its shell and armored scaling are black lava stones. It's a gentle tortoise despite its fiery nature. The sculpture measures 5.25" tall, 6.25" wide, and 8" long.


Each Gourd sculpture is hand signed, dated, and specially numbered. No two are alike!

Sculpture will be double-boxed and shipped via USPS or Fedex (if you prefer UPS, let me know). SHIPPING is quoted for all US residents only. For international buyers, shipping is extra
