As temperatures constantly rise & with summer approaching, we all start looking for ways to beat the heat. Just like our reptilian friends, we enjoy the presence of water and during the treacherous summer months there is no feeling that compares to taking a dip in a custom designed pool suited to your needs and satisfaction.
Turtles are among the oldest and most primitive groups of reptiles and subsequently the animal kingdom. They have evolved over millions of years & live all over the world in almost every type of climate. Therefore its cultural symbolism holds attributes of longevity, endurance, persistence and continuation of life.
The turtle is an old, sacred figure in Native American symbolism as it represents Mother Earth and global balance.
