Throughout history, many myths, legends and theories have come into play regarding the origin of the world. One of these includes what is known as World Turtle. Seen primarily in Hindu, Chinese and Indigenous mythology, they believe that the world is found on the back of a turtle. The turtle was seen as possessing many qualities appropriate for this grand role: perseverance, longevity and determination. Turtles are also continuously moving, much like life and time.
Animal Symbolism of the Turtle:
Of all things the turtle stands for perhaps the most upstanding is its feature to take all of life one step at a time. Steady, stable and pragmatic. We should never turn our noses at these attributes. After all, every great undertaking is done one small action after another - the turtle reminds us of this.
