Turks and Caicos Female Figure Handcrafted by Local Artisans (Three Quarter View)

Turks and Caicos Female Figure Handcrafted by Local Artisans (Three Quarter View)

There are a whole string of tiny islands that from the "country" of Turks and Caicos in the Caribbean. This handcrafted figure is made from woven palm leaves and fiber from the sisal plant. The words, Turks and Caicos, are woven into the front of the woman's straw skirt. She has yellow and orange straw pom poms on her hat and shoes. She also has green flowers and leaves woven into the skirt. This figure stands 16 inches (41 cm) tall.
