This is another beautiful map turtle shell
This is a Mississippi River Map Turtle Shell

This is a 4" shell

The bag inside is made with what I call milk chocolate deerskin
It has very narrow hand braided straps that measure 52" and tie
There is 6" - 8" of double fringe
It is decorated with red glass, red horn disc beads, brass beads and cones

This would be perfect for your next rendezvous or pow wow

All the shells I use are in their natural state, meaning they are not sealed with varnish or shellac
These shells are legal and non-endangered

My bags are all hand made by me and are not native american made

Those with the turtle as their animal totem can relate to the "sure and steady" message this creature brings to our lives.

It is also a powerful totem for protection as withdrawing into it's shell is an amazing self-defense mechanism.

The turtle has few predators, which gives it an innocent energy. This also increases its lifespan, and so holds the symbolic meaning for longevity in many cultures.
