A Bronze Turtle Sculpture by Laurel Peterson Gregory
2 1/2″h × 4 3/4″w × 1 1/2″d
I love, love, love turtles, simple as that. I’m lucky enough to live near a pond where I can see them sunning on the bank…until they notice you and slip into the water.
My big challenge with this sculpture was figuring out a way to get movement into the piece when turtles themselves have very few moving parts. And those that do are quite a small portion of the body. For my first turtle sculpture I decided two is indeed better than one. As with many of my tabletop sculptures & statues I find richness may be added when depicting a relationship. These two little ones know how to move and groove; everything about this sculpture says happy.
