a while back i had a walking stick i found. it reminded me of a turtles head at the top of the stick. in time a friend gave me a turtle that was dead he found. so i left it out all winter. then in the summer i made this walking stick out of some deer hide i had brained, that turtle shell, did the "painting" with tomato leaves from my garden and flowers that grew along my fence as well as some charcoal. the eyeballs were knots already there. i filled the shell with rice after i backed it with rawhide after building a rib cage of sorts out of strips made from broken arrow shafts i had laying around. used white acorns for beads with feathers i found that i cut the tips off of. the shell painting had some hide glue that ran down it i didnt see so it left the white "lightening" effect. i doctored this up by scraping and coloring in with more flowers from my yard. turns a lot of heads out walking  then toiday i was looking over a rock i had, seen a turtle in it so i got to cutting and grinding....
