The turtle personifies the Universe, Mother Earth, the Moon, the element of water, the beginning of creation, immortality, as well as constancy, time, wisdom, and strength, and a handmade wooden statue carving from ecological material.

The turtle is considered a sacred animal by many peoples, and this symbol has many meanings - strength and endurance, longevity, health, and protection.

In the East, the tortoise is the image of the universe itself. The shell of a tortoise is round on top, like the vault of heaven, and flat on the bottom, like the earth. The tortoise itself can be a symbol of the universal man and lord. The beginning of creation is associated with it, therefore, in the royal tombs, each pillar rested on a turtle. It is also associated with the symbolism of water. The ability of a turtle to fully enter its shell can mean concentration, a return to its original state. The famous longevity of the turtle symbolizes immortality.

In many cultures, especially in China, the tortoise is an ancient symbol of cosmic order surrounded by special reverence. Stone turtles holding the pillars of the imperial crypts are a reminder of the legendary Ao, a turtle that holds an earth disk on its back. The Chinese identify the turtle with the north, water, and winter. This animal is also depicted on the imperial banners as the Black Warrior. The turtle is believed to protect against fire and war.

Both in China and Japan, the turtle is a symbol of longevity and senile strength.

In the mythological representations of the ancient Greeks, the tortoise correlated with the Lower World. In the three-term universe, Tartarus was associated with the underworld of the ancient gods, the name of which comes from the word "tartaruga" ("tortoise").

One of the most popular gods of ancient Greece was Hermes - a messenger between the worlds. It was he who made the first seven-stringed lyre from a tortoise shell he accidentally found, which is why the tortoise was considered his sacred animal. It was a magical lyre that could repeat the basic harmonies of the spheres. Amphion, having received a lyre from Hermes, with its help erected the walls of Thebes. Apollo persuaded Hermes to give him this lyre in exchange for cows. Hermes also handed him a flute, for which he received from Apollo "a golden rod and was taught by him the art of divination." Apollo himself turned into a tortoise to marry Dryope. Hermes turned the nymph Egelon into a turtle for joking about the union of Jupiter with Juno.

Finally, the tortoise appears with Aphrodite in her form of Urania: the statue at Olympia depicts Aphrodite Urania resting one foot on the tortoise. Plutarch explains such a neighborhood by the fact that "virgins need protection, and married women are stuck in domesticity and silence."

It is believed that the turtle patronizes the owner of the family, or the owner of a business, a large company. The turtle shell symbolizes reliable protection, a strong rear, and confident forward movement. Just as a shell protects a turtle from adversity, so a person protects his family and his business.

However, there are other meanings: it is a sign of longevity, and good health. The turtle is in no hurry, and at the same time, it is always calm. She will overcome everything and live long.

Also, the turtle is a sign of people who go to their goals. Of course, it can hardly be considered a standard of speed, but it moves forward with confidence. A good talisman for those who have set themselves a long-term life goal, or are developing their business in difficult conditions, but are not ready to retreat.


The turtle is often found in ancient myths and is a character in fairy tales and legends.
