This hand carved button from boxwood was inspired by antique Japanese ojime beads.  Ojime are the sliding bead on the cord of the inro box worn by a geisha.  Contemporary Chinese master carvers take up to four hours to make just one ojime button.  These buttons are also known as Japanese buttons or Chinese buttons.

The turtle button measures 17mm by 38mm by 20mm.
