Sea Turtle with Coral


Sea turtles breathe air but are deep divers and can remain submerged for hours. They even sleep underwater. Most sea turtles spend their entire life at sea, only returning to nesting beaches to lay eggs.
Sea turtles possess unique physical features that allow them to move gracefully and swiftly through the ocean. Unlike other turtles, they are unable to tuck their flippers and head into their shells. However, their streamlined shells and large paddle-shaped flippers make them agile and efficient swimmers. Additionally, their rear flippers serve as rudders, allowing them to maneuver with precision and ease.

This beautiful wall piece is an original handcrafted design. The vibrant colors are created by fusing pulverized glass particles onto solid copper and then firing the piece in a kiln under extreme heat. 
It measures approximately 10" wide x 11.5" tall x 2" deep.
