Douglas Martza: Jasper, Turtle

Douglas Martza: Jasper, Turtle


Martza's turtle captures the essence of strength, longevity, and wisdom associated with turtles in various ancient cultures. The attention to detail is truly remarkable as each scale is precisely etched, capturing the natural texture of a real turtle's shell. The addition of turquoise inlay dots further accentuates the intricate design while infusing vibrant hues reminiscent of nature itself. Chosen for its significance in indigenous cultures, turquoise symbolizes protection and prosperity. 

Turtle (Edo:wa): Turtle has always been esteemed because it carries its home on its back and goes with the flow of the river, not against it. In some mythologies, the first North Americans envisioned the continent as a turtle because it was surrounded by water. Turtle reminds us to respect Mother Earth.
