This serpentine sea turtle was carved by Colin Weeka. It has inlaid turquoise eyes and detailed nostrils. Colin carved a sweet flower on the shell and detailed the flippers and tail. It looks like a baby sea turtle to us and seems so sweet!
Size: .5" H x 1.75" L x 1.125" W
Sea turtles begin their lives in an egg on the beach. We’ve probably all seen the photos and film about them hatching and racing to the waters before predators get them. They can be up to nine feet long and have been around for 150 million years. They are one of our oldest relatives. They have similar lifetimes to humans. Sea turtles are held in high regard in some island cultures.
Traditionally, Zuni carvings are symbolically fed cornmeal. Each Zuni fetish comes in a box with a descriptive card and a tiny bit of corn meal to tide them over until they reach you.
