Take It Slow

Garden greens looking a little blue? Is that unruly tangle of a yard making you lose your inner balance? Let Michael Gentilucci's centering sculptures bring peace, humor, and the art of Zen to off-kilter spaces.

Known for its slow-and-steady pace, the turtle adds a calming presence to outdoor spaces and reminds us to watch our speed and take in the little things in life. To add even more Zen-like charm, Chinese characters etched into the back of each turtle's robe represent the animal's primary characteristic—longevity. Michael's meditative sealed cement sculptures are designed to weather the elements through the four seasons as they center greenspaces with their amiable auras. Handmade in USA.

    This gift has such a happy face on it that it makes you smile whenever you happen to see it. I know my sister-in-law loves it! It has a significant weight to it so it's not flimsy at all and the detail on it is awesome.

          I bought the large sized turtle as a gift for my sister because she has a beautiful backyard garden in Oregon that has several different water areas, flowers, plants and trees with a very zen feel. It makes a great gift for anyone who wants a cool addition to their garden landscape.

          Ordered this darling turtle for a friend's new rock garden in New Mexico. He is darling and arrived in perfect shape (according to her). Turtle represents longevity and faithfulness. Perfect gift!

          She LOVED it!!

          Verified Buyer

          Comments about UncommonGoods Zen Turtle Garden Sculpture:

          My mother collects turtles (little sculptures) for her garden, and the walk up to the front door. I ordered this for Mother's Day, and she LOVED it! She said it was one of the most thoughtful gifts she's ever received -- especially when she read the little tag that came with it that explains the "longevity" significance of the Chinese characters.

          You guys did it again! Great products, and great service!

          I wanted something different to give to my daughter-in-law and this was perfect. It was her first Mothers Day and this will be something she will always remember. It is made very well and I know will last a long time in her garden. A wonderful accent piece that is adorable, thanks for the great options that you have.
