Terry Wilson's extraordinary marble Turtle is about 3 3/8" long, 2 1/8" wide and 3/4" tall. He's incised this reptile's shell with a sunburst design and inlaid realistic eyes of jet. Turtle (Edo:wa in Zuni) has always been esteemed because it carries its home on its back and goes with the flow of the river, not against it.
