This unique piece is carved in Indonesia from a single piece of burl wood (also known as parasite wood) to depict a beautiful turtle. No two pieces will be identical, but the professional workmanship always shines through!
The turtle is a sacred figure in Native American symbolism as it represents Mother Earth. The meaning of the Turtle symbol signifies good health and long life. The turtle has great longevity, living up to 150 years.
The Turtle carries the world on its back, grounding it wherever it goes. It is determined and persistent as it slowly moves on land, steadily evolving physically. By slowing down and pacing yourself you can endure the chaos of life’s transformational cycles with ease.
