This offering is sold.

The Indigenous Wayuu Nation in both Colombia and Venezuela are the direct descendants of the Arawak People who once inhabited a huge portion of the southern Caribbean before the arrival of Europeans. The Wayuu’s worldview is chock full of stories about the sea and its inhabitants. They consider themselves protectors of an ancient culture based on maintaining a harmonious alliance with nature, the mountains, the trees and animals who are regarded as kin. Dreams of marine turtles are considered messages from Maleiwa (God) and the ancestors. Brion Hattie's speckled serpentine sea Turtle is a visual wake up call to respect all creation and their vital purpose in life. Sweet coral eyes are set and a nicely designed carapace is beautifully rounded. About 2 3/4" long, 2 1/4" wide and 1" tall.
