Dolomite Sea Turtle by Jayne Quam

$ 75.00

A muted pink dolomite sea turtle with turquoise inlaid eyes carved by Jayne Quam. Jayne has inlaid bits of shell and stone to the turtle's shell in her cloisonné style. One swirling shell creates a heart line, we think. Indigenous people recognize the turtle as the symbol of Mother Earth - some Native Americans believe that the turtle contributed to creation because the turtle dove 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.
Artist: Jayne Quam (signed)
