This painting includes
a single common starfish laying on sand surrounded by a cobalt blue ring. Five hatchling Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtles,
struggling in sand, encircle the starfish image. Another cobalt blue ring surrounds the turtle images. Eight scalloped seashells
surround the central images. A circular cobalt blue border, including eight full moons complete the design.
Each element of the design signifies a particular blessing given to the owner of the art piece.
A single starfish symbolizes a blessing of strength, renewal and versatility during your life journey. Its
five tentacles signify a resourceful ability to explore the world around you. Five hatchling sea turtles beckon you to consider
the wonder and unpredictability of life. Each turtle is a symbol of longevity, endurance and persistence. The sea turtle,
while moving toward its desired goals, accomplishes monumental tasks against incredibly difficult circumstances. Eight scalloped
seashells symbolize a blessing for a successful pilgrimage and celebrate the wonderful discoveries you experience along the
way. Eight full moons within the cobalt blue border symbolize your ability to gracefully transition into a new cycle of balance
during your life journey.
