Did you tie up the turtle using hair from your back? ;)

I had to post the entry quickly and leave so I didn't get to leave a comment...

I was trying a spin on the aboriginal (sp?) tribal art, though without so many dots, more of a modern take. Hope you all like it.

6 colors on Royal Blue.

After seeing the entries so far, I am glad you decided to go with something other than a koala!!

ok, so there's a turtle carrying a guy who appears to have had a bad meat-pie who has to carry a frog on his back for his trouble.

hmm

I think I'm just seeing things, but they can't be unseen.

Maybe I'm actually seeing more than is here, but I really see some depth and a very, very nice take on the real spirit of aboriginal art, a less 'dotty' take notwithstanding. The turtle carries the world in so many cultures. The arms/legs wrapping over and around, that almost seem to make a face, as well; the frog as a symbol on its own plus looks like the nose...
Like I said, I could be imagining it but, I think this goes farther to touch on the heart of aboriginal art than most other similar subs.

Thank you so very much. When the derby came up I imediately thought of the Aborigonal art
style, and I was really hoping that my design would be meaningful to people. I am still fairly new to woot and I really enjoy getting a chance to branch out with my art work.

I just think of your kid telling me to not mess with the turtle, and then the quote "It's turtles all the way down". Plus, it looks really nice, so obviously it's /GMV.
