Onyx Sea Turtle by Melissa Quam - Zuni Fetish

$ 65.00

A cream, green and golden ocher colored onys sea turtle carved by Melissa Quam looking to its right side with jet inlaid eyes. Indigenous people recognize the turtle as the symbol of Mother Earth - some Native Americans believe that the turtle contributed to creation because the turtle dived into the primeval waters to retrieve mud to create Mother Earth. The turtle is regarded as a skillful navigator through life's difficulties. Turtle medicine teaches one to go with the flow, due to the turtle's proclivity to go with the current.
