Antler Sea Turtles by Ruben Najera

$ 70.00

A joyous carving in antler depicting 2 sea turtles with jet inlaid eyes climbing up over a sand dune with the trails of many others incised in the 'sand'. This carving was made by Ruben Najera - Esteban's brother. The sea turtles' shells have incised patterns on them and are carved flying over the dune in different directions. In the creation myths of some tribes, the Great Spirit created land by placing earth on the back of a giant turtle - hence North America is sometimes called Turtle Island. Turtle energy is to go with the flow, due to the turtle's proclivity to go with the current & the turtle is esteemed by all native cultures & symbolically represents mother earth.
