So your quiz of the day is what is this box made out of? I guessed wood and was told "nope" so take that guess off your list. Answer will be revealed at the end of the post.
This basket got a few gasps out of the ladies as they opened the lid and a snake popped out. One woman about walked out as she was deftly frightened by snakes - dead, alive or even fake ones that pop out of a basket.
This was a hand carved box that was just exquisite. They are very religious and you could see signs of this devotion with crucifixes adorning the artwork. Inside the box were some hand carved stone beads. They were surprising smooth for being hand carved. The detail on the box was carried out even on the inside as you opened the lid and inside the rim in the interior of the box. I don't know how they got their tools inside the box to whittle it from the inside...just amazing to think of the craftmanship and beauty.
Ok so what was the box at the top made out of...other guesses that were incorrect included stone and bone. It is stained camel teeth. I had to relook at it and think, "Wow camels have some humongous teeth!" because they looked huge on that box.
