Oil. Did this for my wife's birthday a few years back.

Again ... sorry about the glare.

I think it was a very loving gesture :) I like turtles. Frogs better. But, I like turtles.

I like how this one feels. How large is it?

Since we're on symbols tonight: turtles are female/maternal symbols in some Native American lore.

A quote from the Dictionary of Symbols by Cirlot:
"In the Far East its significance is cosmic in implication. As Chochod has observed: 'THe primordial turtle has a shell that is rounded on the top to represent heaven, and square on the botoom to represent the earth".

It's lovely and very serene.

Yeah ... serenity is something I was indeed going for with this one. I often find myself lost inside the waves for a time when staring into it about our couch on the other side of the room.
