In my print Sowlal – Turtle mating, I use my carving pattern representing crystal clear waters of my island homes sea country around the main figure of the sowlal.

The turtles when Sowlal is an important totemic and spiritual happening that tells as islanders different seasonal changes that occur around the time the sowlal in our waters.

This season tells us that certain types of islander preferred fish are in in schools and fat and ready for spear fishing. We at home Badu we always ready for this season.
