Spinning Turtle - Small
Our Spinning Family consists of small, quirky wooden figures of animals, each of which symbolize something different. It can be, among other things, the endurance of the kangaroo, the transformation of the swan, the strength of the lion, etc.
Overall, they also have a unified symbolism, which is expressed by the rotating globe when you push them forward.
The rotating globe represents the Earth.
Our intention with the figures is that they become a daily reminder that we all have a responsibility for Mother Earth and for ensuring that future generations are also able to enjoy her. That our choices and actions affect both animals and nature. We want to influence the Earth in a positive direction and benefit it rather than exploit it.
We do not believe that we can be made aware of this enough.
The figures are made from wooden leftovers, which are normally not chosen in design production.
Why the elephant and the turtle wooden figures?
According to Indian cosmology, an elephant standing on a turtle is a symbol of world stability.
They are a visual reminder of maintaining stability in a changing world.
THE TURTLE is associated with creation, fertility and longevity.
Its slowness is seen as a sign of “festina lente”, which means “make haste slowly”.
It is also attributed cosmological function in the form of being a creature on whose back the Earth rests.
Therefore, it is designed with the round ball/the earth on the back.
When you move the figure forward, it turns the earth slowly and gives you an extra reminder to slow down.
-Design by Søren Graversen.
-Produced from wooden leftovers that are usually discarded. Here, the leftovers are instead transformed into fine little figures.
-Notice: Each design might have random marks and knots making each of them unique.
