Animal: Turtle, Material: Zuni Travertine
This offering is sold.
Turtle (Edo:wa) has always been esteemed because it carries its home on its back and goes with the flow of the river, not against it. Freddie Leekya gave this Turtle a very pretty home of overlaid turquoise carapace top with a tiny inlaid dot of red coral right in the center. Around the carapace Freddie inlaid dots of bright turquoise. The same inlaid turquoise gives this long living reptile a crafty expression. About 1 1/2" tall, 1 3/8" wide and 1 7/8" long.
