This intricate hand colored stone lithograph features the shell of a turtle (carapace is the name for the shell of turtles and other vertebrates with shells, as well as some arthropods). Surrounding the shell are symbols of the many ways that turtles have been represented in cultures around the world. The symbols include sea turtles, cave paintings and the depiction of turtle imagery in instruments and rituals.
This fine art piece was printed on a flatbed lithography printing press by Tom Shreve in Missoula Montana on Arches white paper.
