Speckled Turtle

By Salvador Romero, Cochiti

Animal: Turtle, Material: Found Stone
This offering is sold.
Salvador Romero's Turtle is a gorgeous granite found stone, minimally carved and expressive. Salvador's creative process involves a sort of channeling of the animal, recognizing it in the stone and doing just enough to bring it into this world. The power of a fetish comes from a collaboration between the animal, the stone, the carver and the possessor of the carving. This sweet turtle is about 3 1/4" long and 2 1/4" wide.
