Nelson Yatsattie's vigorous Turtle is carved from perfectly green serpentine. This graceful reptile is expertly sculpted and has many exciting sgraffito details. With eyes of inlaid turquoise, it measures about 2 1/2" long, 1 5/8" wide, and 1" tall. Turtle can help us to not be anxious, and to be comfortable in our own skin, for turtle is always home no matter where it may roam. Nelson is renowned carver Brian Yatsattie's brother.
