Antler Turtle by Robert Michael Weahkee

$ 400.00

A large antler turtle with turquoise inlaid eyes carved by Robert Michael Weahkee with a shell created out of the antler burr. Robert has incised in low relief a baby turtle on the parent's shell, then he burnished it and inlaid turquoise eyes - the quite lovely! The turtle wears a lovely necklace composed of amber, citrine, aqua marine blue and green peridot beads. Robert is quite proud of the bead addition and we have been told by the artist that he uses beads that have healing properties. The parent turtle has a burnished/burned nose and mouth,as well as the top of the head and right below the shell. Turtle medicine teaches one to go with the flow, due to the turtle's proclivity to go with the current. The turtle symbolically represents mother earth.
