There are two main themes of the throphy. The first is the turtle as the symbol of the long life, the seas and renascence. His tortoiseshell implies to hidden strenght. Legends say when the seas prevailed on Earth, The Turtle dived to the bottom of the ocean to carry the Earth on his back because he wanted to provide a dry home for the humans. When he senses danger or he is in an incomfortable, unbalanced positon he retreats back into his shell. "A turtle is always home." The second is the seaweed which teaches us prudence, patience and confidence. It is easy to enmesh into it but with the turtle's attitude the riddance is a cake-walk. "Though ships bob on the surface. And oceans run beneath us. It is the water rules."
