"Beautiful"

The colors and details of this turtle vase are stunningly beautiful. The turtles appear to be swimming in sea water and sea grass. The artist Maria has captued the essence of these beautiful creatures in her work. I have never seen a sea turtle in the wild, but now I have this vase on my desk to help me imagine their environment. A beautiful creation on many levels.
