A smaller design in this series. "Honu" is the Hawaiian word for sea turtle. They are considered by ancient Hawaiian folk lore to be a sign of good fortune and a symbol of the Goddess. There are thirteen panels on the back of their shell representing the thirteen moons in one year. Thenty-eight panels surround the outside of the shell representing the cycle of the Goddess. They are graceful creatures that bless the ocean with their beauty.
