Turtles are one of the most beautiful and endearing creatures on our planet. Steve came to learn this and all about them from working on conservation projects, helping rescued turtles and releasing them back into the wild. This inspired him to learn to scuba dive as he wanted to be able to see them below sea level and it was here where his creative fire was really ignited. Being able to see the grace of movement and elegance they possess in the water inspired him, so much so that they have become one of his favourite subjects and bestsellers, this being his third portrayal.

This is the biggest Turtle sculpture Steve has created to date and the only solo one, he created this piece standing alone which differs from his previous as he wanted to make the dynamics of this underwater marvel the focal point. The way this work is poised creates a wonderful composition which is very eye catching and with the textures he has created both by sculpting and in the bronze craftsmanship, the longer you look at it the more you feel as though you are submerged below sea level watching the turtle glide elegantly through the water.
