You may not have seen a purple cow or a pink elephant, but here is real, gorgeous, glistening little beaver, exactingly carved from one piece of moonlit mother of pearl.
Karen Zunie is a well-known fetish artist, whose speciality is a range of charming animals, carved with naturalistic detail.
This beaver is both realistic and detailed, although the shimmering mother of pearl turns him into a fairy-tale vision of a beaver.
However, his broad flat tail, furry pelt, sharp claws, and well-proportioned head all add up to a remarkably handsome, recognizable beaver.
Turquoise eyes add a spark of southwest color to his meticulously carved body and tail.
Totally beaver-ish, the iridescent mother of pearl makes him look like a prince, waiting for that liberating kiss.
If a frog can be a prince, why not a beaver, especially one as beautiful this one?
