SHELL OF A TURTLE
Canvas, mixed media
“There exist forms and ideas which move us to reflection. For me, one of them is the form of the turtle, which, like the fish, recurs through my work. I have read a lot about turtles and know a lot about them. The Chinese consider the turtle to be the symbol of the universe, and since I am a symbolist, the shell and armor of this animal carries a far deeper meaning for me», - Dmitry Plavinsky.
