A proud Zuni Turtle is crafted from Banded Onyx by Rosella and Loubert Soseeah. The natural tone and variation in color hail an intrinsic relationship to the Earth, from the tough material of the Turtle shell to its close proximity to the Earths surface. The smooth, flowing digressions in bands of color in the Turtle shell are suggestive of the seabed, where the Turtle might naturally be found. Indeed, the turtle is a symbol of the earth in most Native American cultures and is associated with self-reliance, non-violent defense and being a skillful navigator through life's obstacles. Dimensions: 0.5'' H x 1.5'' L x 1.375'' W.
