I recently was able to hand sort through a small group of gemstone carvings from the 1960's. I was eager to select a few special pieces for my own collection and also purchased a small group for the shop. This Sea Turtle caught my eye instantly! The coloring of natural turquoise selected for this piece could not be more fitting for this beautiful sea creature, and the carved detail is second to none. They simply do not carve in detail like this anymore! His eyes are recessed and embedded with dark detailing, so unbelievably realistic. A true collectors piece carved from genuine Turquoise! Cleansed with sage and ready to swim along on his journey.
Dimensions: This beautiful sculpture measures 3.1" in length from tip of its beak to the tip of its back leg. The piece weighs 73gms.
Turtles are one of the oldest creatures on earth. The Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle, known as “Honu,” symbolizes good luck, endurance and long life. The turtle is a sacred figure in Native American symbolism as it represents Mother Earth. The turtle can live up to 150 years, and thus symbolizes good health and long life. He teaches us the importance of walking our path in peace and with resilience, determination and serenity. Traditionally, the turtle is symbolic of the way of peace, whether its inviting us to cultivate peace of mind or a peaceful relationship with our environment.
