Silverado Jet Turtle by Mike Yatsayte

$ 60.00

A small Silverado jet turtle with turquoise inlaid eyes carved by Mike Yatsayte. Mike has incised the scutes on the turtle's shell then added four turquoise dots to the center. 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: Mike Yatsayte (signed)
Size: 1-3/8 in. wide x 2 oin. long x 5/8 in. tall
