This is most complex toggle I think I have ever seen: Two frogs, one fish and 2 lotus sees pods, one with the seeds moving. Boxwood. approx 6 cm long and 6 cm high. Probably boxwood. Absolutely unique. the back of the toggle has two lotus stems wound like a rope from the two lotus seeds' pods. There is something else There It is also a new Lotus growth with a new lotus bud coming out of it It is till a bud. there are 3 pair of holes for running a cord through; we have used only 1 pair.
