Green Sea Turtle – Glyph Turtle
Hand drawn with pen and India Ink on paper

Beautiful Sea Turtles come to me in my dreams... This one I drew after a wonderful day of diving and a night of turtle dreams.

The day was incredible, diving in a bay filled with turtles, all returning, in mass to nest (a rare site anywhere in the world, with turtle numbers falling like rocks). That night, I dreamed I was swimming with a beautiful old turtle, his shell covered with glyphs. I was trying my best to stay with him and read his shell. Knowing turtles are the longest living vertebrates that travel great distances and often-go weeks without food, I wanted to learn anything this turtle could teach me.

In Chinese mythology, the turtle or tortoise is the symbol of unchanging stability and longevity.

Drawn by hand - in India ink.
