Pondering Turtle

By Freddie Leekya

Animal: Turtle, Material: Zuni Travertine
This offering is sold.
Freddie Leekya's Zuni travertine wise turtle ponders which way to go through turquoise inlaid eyes. A bright spiny oyster shell accents an etched carapace. While tortoises are generally land-based, turtles move with ease between terrestrial and aquatic places. In a slow gait they reach a destination successfully. In Zuni Pueblo, Turtle shells are prized for making rattles used by the Rain Dancers. About 1 1/2" long, 1 1/4" wide and 1 1/4" tall.
