Lapis Lazuli And Chrysoprase Turtle with Hatchling by Loren Tsalabutie

$ 200.00

An animated lapis sea turtle with its lemon chrysoprase hatchling mounted on it's back at an angle suggesting the duo are moving through the water - carved by Loren Tsalabutie and received in late May of 2023. Animals carved with their offspring, no mater the species - suggests the bond that occurs between the two. 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.
