Great Chelonian Art by Koopa

“All the thought of a turtle are turtle”.
--- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Koopa creates these great paintings using his feet and his plastron --
with the assistance of Kira, the only person in the world whose job title is “turtle’s assistant”.


For, lo, the winter is past,
The rain is over and gone;
The flowers appear on the earth;
The time of the singing of birds is come,
And the voice of the turtle is heard in our land.
----- Canticles 2:12

You won’t believe your eyes!

Kira says, “ does not endorse the kissing of snapping turtles”.
