Turtle Dove Facts
Doves are found all over the West Indies and come in many sizes. Our Turtle Dove is representative of the smaller members of the family. One species on the island of Tortola, the Ground Dove, is known in Spanish as "Tórtolita" and another, the Mountain Dove is known as "Tórtola" and so these birds are particularly dear to the B.V.I.
Turtle Doves nest mostly in shrubbery and trees but sometimes on the ground. Their low cooing sound can easily be heard on a calm day in open country. Like our model here, typically they can be seen resting or sleeping with their beak tucked in at the breast.
Latin name: Zenaida or Columba

Virgin Island Fossil Coral Figurines are not painted...
They are shot through with color as they are made. Every figurine made is unique. The technique of the artisan in laying in the colors, the batch of white fossil coral prepared for use, the temperature, the humidity, all affect how the colors will flow. No two will ever be exactly the same. All our pieces are all individually made. The Coral Studio employs no mass production techniques, only skilled craftsmen.
