The Old Turtle, 2014, ink wash, pencil and color pencil on paper, 8.5 x 11 inches /
22 x 28 cm
I came across a picture of a stone sculpture of a turtle. The turtle is an old symbol of the creation of the world, and in ancient time it was considered sacred in many parts of the world.
The turtle here kind of has grin on his face, and the stone surface seems to be turning into turtle skin. Is it possible this turtle is coming back from the past?
