Turtle Island

IMG_2127In some Native American mythology, Mother Earth came about upon the back of a Turtle spirit. A big Turtle spirit.  Out  of respect for both the First Americans, who some of you may have heard were not exactly embraced as brothers by the European “discoverers”, and out of a great respect for myth and metaphor as well, I spent 3 or 4 months creating what I call The Turtle Island Mandala upon a 2 foot square piece of Indian (from the place called India) Slate.

Framed in Arizona Chocolate sandstone, the symbology is of the 4 races of humanity reuniting with  Mother Earth. Sounds pretty simple. I think our world leaders are working on that right now.
