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 is a fun item for our gardens. My wife has a number of turtle objects because they reflect longevity and take life in a slow and positive manner. This item also reflected that and she loved having one more turtle in the collection.

                Comments about UncommonGoods Zen Turtle Garden Sculpture:

                We put this in our backyard under our Japanese Maple. We have the larger size and it's just large enough and heavy enough to make a nice statement and stay where you put it without being so large you loose the quiet peacefulness it projects. It has enough detail you could use it indoors. If you are buying it as a gift, ours arrived encased by foam on each end so it will only be able to be taken out once and stay protected well, if you need to wrap it you will probably need to wrap the box it was shipped in. The box we got was just large enough for it, very little wasted space.

                  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.

                    Bought as a gift for my neice going away to College, she's a turtle pet owner. She's was elated to receive this to accomodate her in her dorm & it symbolizes things I've taught her.

                        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.
