With the holiday gift-giving season upon us, here’s a truly unique item.
It’s the Crystal Back Turtle, which functions as an attractive sculpture as well as stylish desk lamp. This elegant creation, made of wood or stone, is the work of Mongolian designer Bayarmunkh Lkhanaajaw, who sees the sculpted turtle as representing beauty and inner peace.
“The turtle combines distinctive imagery and deep meaning,” explained Lkhanaajaw. “This creature is the symbol of peacefulness and quietness. Therefore, we hope that Crystal Back Turtle will bring a feeling of comfort and rest.

“In the animal kingdom, the turtle is slow but it is also mellow and kind. The turtle respects the environment and the creatures that live in it. This is the message I’m trying to convey with this piece.”
The Crystal Back Turtle is distinctive as well as practical. It has an empty space on top of its shell where a bulb and a beautiful crystal are inserted. The light emanates from the crystal, creating an enchanting aura. It operates on electricity from a wall outlet or a rechargeable battery.
“This makes an excellent gift for the holidays or any other occasion,” Lkhanaajaw said. “It really adds something special to a room, whether you’re using the light for reading or work, or just as a decorative item.”
Lkhanaajaw has produced several Crystal Back Turtle prototypes and would like to manufacture these items in bulk so that more people can enjoy them. In order to do so, he needs $50,000 for materials, tools, special machinery and marketing.
Lkhanaajaw has launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise this start-up capital. The page can be viewed at www.indiegogo.com/projects/crystal-back-turtle-desk-lamp
Those who would like to support this project are welcome to make a donation of any amount. For a $350 contribution, you can receive a wooden Crystal Back Turtle. The stone turtle is available for a $550 pledge.
