Picasso Marble Sea Turtle by Jayne Quam

$ 54.00

A small gray, black and brown headed Picasso marble sea turtle with turquoise inlaid eyes. Carved by Jayne Quam, the turtle's shell is inlaid with bits of stone and shell in Jayne's unique cloisonné style. 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.
