Picasso Marble Turtle by Herbert Him

$ 150.00

A muted grayish cream colored Picasso marble turtle carved by Herbert Him looking to its right side and up at the viewer with turquoise inlaid eyes. Herbert has incised the scutes in low relief. This guy looks solid like a tank! 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: Herbert Him (signed)
Size: 1-1/2 in. wide x 3 in. long x 1 in. tall
