Underside of a Turtle

I took apart the turtle I found and the object in the center is his underside or undershell. My husband didn’t get this piece at all. That’s why I wrote under it. Kerfe gave me a book of skeletons which I like a lot; I attempted a drawing of a turtle skeleton on the right. On the left is a drawing of the underside. 

Close up of my drawing: 

The wonderful book of skeletons. It has just about everything in it. A gift that keeps on giving. Thanks Kerfe.

    Nina, you are a natural science artist for sure now. After having eaten hard shell crabs this past week, I find similarities with the underside of the turtle and the underside of the crab. Interesting – and good gift from Kerfe for you!

    I think we would have gotten your work of art even without the writing! 🙂 It’s funky and well-drawn! I think I need that book on skeletons, too!

    When I had my broken foot I had a bone scan, not just of the foot but of my whole body. I have seen my very own skeleton and it is an unsettling experience to think that it wasn’t just a skeleton but MINE and how I’ll look when I’m – a skeleton. But in another way, it was comforting. I exist, there is the evidence! And – very intriguing to envision yourself in a stage of existence you will not see, yourself.

    I like skeletons, too, you can see.

    I like the way it seems like a scientific investigation of the turtle. 🙂

    You knew I would love this. The delicate yellow and blue greens really add a lot too. Look great with the black and white.
