Full of character, this Meditating Turtle Garden Stone Sculpture is a one-of-a-kind piece of art for your yard, garden or indoor spaces. Eyes closed, this meditating turtle is wearing and holding prayer beads, reflecting a Zen mentality. Available in three sizes and handmade in California, this tortoise statue's flowing robe is engraved with the Chinese symbol for "longevity."
In China, the tortoise is sacred and symbolizes longevity, power and tenacity. It is said that the tortoise helped Pangu create the world: the creator goddess Nuwa cuts the legs off a sea turtle and uses them to prop up the sky after Gong Gong destroys the mountain that had supported the sky.
Place this handmade, solid stone turtle sculpture in a flowerbed, landscaped area, near a patio or bring him indoors to fill your home with the blessing of a long life and good health. Original design by Michael Gentilucci. Handcrafted in the USA. Please choose Large, Medium or Small Turtle in Mossy or Old Stone.
