For a slideshow click HERE. When you click the link, it will open in a new window and you have two options:
1) Manually scroll through the photos by clicking the “<” and “>” symbols to the left or right of the photos.
2) There’s a PLAY/PAUSE button at the bottom-left of the screen with the transition set at about 5 seconds. Note: clicking the PLAY arrow will run a full-screen slideshow. You can then still use the”<” and “>” symbols to the left or right of the photos as this will pause the slideshow.

This wood carving of a Sea Turtle is part of a decorative display mounted on one of the walls in the house of friends. 

I don’t know for sure but the background appears to be the skeletonized remains of an underwater leafy plant or possibly a coral. I’ve seen photos of things that might look like that but can’t identify it for certain. 

Of course, it could be from a land-based plant. 

Anyway, the above photo was adjusted for distortion, cropped, and treated for color accuracy, brightness, contrast, and saturation. 

Here’s the B&W version.

Here’s another portion of it . . .
