Baby turtle sculpture is inspired by the western painted turtle that lives here in western Canada. The Baby turtles are about only 1 inch long when they first hatch, smaller than this sweet little guy.
The Western Painted Turtle is an endangered and red listed species that lives here on British Columbia's Sunshine Coast. It is the only native turtle in BC. There is a group of local biologists that monitor the rare painted turtles. The biologists work to remove the introduced slider turtle, reclaim habitats and monitor turtle hatch-lings.
The Western Painted Turtle Sculpture was carved in wax then cast in bronze for the original design. The reproductions are cast in fine silver pewter and plated in copper then the blue green patina created. The beautiful hand made copper patina finish is protected with a coat of clear lacquer.
Each turtle sculpture is going to have it's unique patina, no two sculptures are alike but just as beautiful.

This little guy was a birthday present for my great nephew. It arrived before his birthday. He loved it, as soon as he opened it he ran to his room to get his pocket frog that I had sent him last year from the same artist. Beautiful detail . The perfect gift for a little art and nature lover!
