This turtle design is based on a request from a client to design him a turtle platter. My initial reaction was that I had never seen a Ksan turtle design and it might be because there aren’t turtles on the Skeena River in BC. But – after some research, I discovered that the Western Painted Turtle is a fresh water turtle that is on the extinct list in this region. After some reflection, I created my turtle design. Since, I’ve been told about other Aboriginal Tribes who believe turtles are sacred and represent the Turtle Island and that further, I somehow created my design with the correct number of design elements! Funny how things work out…
