FACTS & HISTORY:
In Eastern Cultures, the tortoise is sacred and symbolizes longevity, power, and tenacity.
It is revered for its long life, endurance, and wisdom. Their shells also represent protection.
In Buddhism, there is a story of a turtle that reminds us of how precious life is. A human birth is said to be as rare as a blind turtle in a vast ocean that swims up and pokes its head out of the center of a single yoke floating on the surface of the water.
