In this piece, one can see the Turtle setting out into the world to relay the important knowledge as imparted by all those gathered around her, too we human beings, rendered on the right. The prospect of Turtle as a ‘communicator’ strikes a tone given that they do not produce readily audible sounds, and who, given the apparent absence of ears, although they are in fact, internal. It is this subtle yet vital internal mechanism that helps them understand and navigate the external world. This characteristic only heightens the importance of Turtle’s symbol for humanity, demonstrating the importance of the unseen, as the deepest truths about ourselves and our world are discerned through our internal, many would say “spiritual,” faculties.
